This review is from: Japanese Cooking (Conran Octopus Cookery) (Paperback)
This book is for people who like healthy and delicous food, especially if you like the typically Japanese taste of meals, which takes little time to prepare.
There's a lot of soya sauce, tofu and kombu soup base in the recipes so if you don't like those you'd better buy Jamie Olliver or something.
This is a modern Japanese cuisine, so if you want some old-Japan recipes which take hours to make with only wooden utensils stay clear away from Harumi. She's all about efficiency and sensibility, microwaves and rice cookers when possible.
She always offers western substitutes to Japanese ingredients difficult to find outside her home country so you don't have to travel far or spend a lot to enjoy her recipes.
I absolutely love it!
