I am planning on buying this for my son for Christmas. He is working on becoming a chef and he is very interested in Asian culture/cuisine. I believe this book will be perfect!

"Review" by , "Nancy Hachisu is...intrepid. Outrageously creative. Intensely passionate. Committed. True and real. I urge you to cook from this book with abandon, but first read it like a memoir, chapter by chapter, and you will share in the story of a modern-day family, a totally unique and extraordinary one."
"Review" by , "This book is both an intimate portrait of Nancy's life on the farm, and an important work that shows the universality of an authentic food culture."
"Review" by , “The modest title Japanese Farm Food turns out to be large, embracing and perhaps surprising. Unlike the farm-to-table life as we know it here, where precious farm foods are cooked with recipes, often with some elaboration, real farm food means eating the same thing day after day when it’s plentiful, putting it up for when it’s not, and cooking it very, very simply because the farm demands so much more time in the field than in the kitchen. This beautiful, touching, and ultimately common sense book is about a life that’s balanced between the idea that a life chooses you and that you in turn choose it and then live it wholeheartedly and largely. Thank you, Nancy, for sharing your rich, intentional and truly inspiring life.”
"Review" by , “Nancy Hachisu’s amazing depth of knowledge of Japanese food and culture shines through in every part of this book. You will feel as if you live next door to her...savoring and learning her down-to-earth approach to cooking and to loving food.”
"Review" by , “Taking a peek into Nancy Hachisu's stunning Japanese Farm Food is like entering a magical world. It’s a Japan that used to be, not the modern Japan defined by the busyness of Tokyo, but a more timeless place, a place whose rhythms are set by seasons and traditions and the work of the farm. Japanese Farm Food is so much more than a cookbook. This book has soul. Every vegetable, every tool has a story. Who grew this eggplant? Who made this soy sauce? Nancy doesn’t have to ask, “Where does my food come from?” She knows. Here's a woman who grows and harvests her own rice, grain by grain. Not that she asks or expects us to do the same at all. What she does offer is a glimpse into her life in rural Japan, with its shoji screens and filtered light, and recipes from her farm kitchen that you can’t wait to try.”
"Review" by , "Japanese Farm Food is a lovely book about the culture, landscape, and food of Japan, a true insider's view of the Japanese kitchen, from farm to table, by a passionate and talented writer."
"Synopsis" by , Japanese Farm Food offers a unique look into life on a Japanese farm through 135 simple, clear-flavored recipes along with personal stories and over 100 stunning photographs. It is a book about love, community, and life in rural Japan.
