Nice recipes but not many of them,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Everyday Harumi: Simple Japanese food for family and friends (Hardcover)
Having been to Japan and been on a Japanese cooking class I wanted some more ideas of Japanese meals to make. There are a few recipes I have really enjoyed but there does not seem to be much variety and I wanted more ideas for meals, rather than dishes.
I am still not sure how to put them together for a meal, and despite frequent mentions that Japanese cooking has a lot of focus on vegetables very few of these recipes involve vegetables and I often seem to end up with meat in a sauce with rice.
I am sure when I am a bit more practised and just want some dishes to add to my meal this book will come into its own, but if you are brand new to Japanese cooking I don't think it is the best place to start. If you do find a good starting place please let me know!
