5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful and inspiring book of "Japanese Soul Food"
This book needs to be tried. I became motivated to try my hand at japanese food after several good evenings out. I have never been to Japan, so I don't have room for comparison with "authentic" japanese food.

The recipes are all great, and not too challenging from a technical perspective, just as soul cooking should be.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful and inspiring book of "Japanese Soul Food", 1 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Japanese Soul Cooking: Ramen, Tonkatsu, Tempura and more from the Streets and Kitchens of Tokyo and beyond (Hardcover)
This book needs to be tried. I became motivated to try my hand at japanese food after several good evenings out. I have never been to Japan, so I don't have room for comparison with "authentic" japanese food.

The recipes are all great, and not too challenging from a technical perspective, just as soul cooking should be.

The book itself is a pleasure to cruise through and there is an abundance of good reading about the history and story behind the dishes.

It also has useful colloquial short cuts that are clearly popular in Japan, with various prefab food being recommended to save time, but they are optional if you want to try the whole thing.

I have, and will continue to recommend this book to my friends and family that have enjoyed this food.

This review is from: Japanese Soul Cooking: Ramen, Tonkatsu, Tempura and more from the Streets and Kitchens of Tokyo and beyond (Hardcover)
Fantastic recipes, including some unusual ones. Not too many specialist ingredients, but a deep fat frier would be useful for many recipes.
