Tasty Japanese, Simply Done,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Everyday Harumi: Simple Japanese food for family and friends (Hardcover)
I bought this book a couple of weeks ago because I am a keen cook and have been wanting to try cooking Japanese food for a while. I was a bit concerned that like other Asian foods it would require a load of ingredients that you can only get from a specialist supermarket or online. I was was very pleased when the book arrived and the ingredients required for nearly all the dishes can be found in a regular supermarket without trouble. There are one or two specialist ingredients but Harumi offers advised on suitable alternatives if you cant get hold of them. The number of ingredients required for each dish is usually short along with the preparation time in most cases (some require a little more effort but nothing too strenuous). The recipes are clear and concise and then end results delicious. Harumi also takes you through how to cook absolutely perfect japanese rice as a bonus. So far I have cooked the miso marinated steak and the ginger pork and both were easy to do and tasted fantastic. I'm looking forward to trying the other recipes soon and perhaps purchasing her other cookbook!
