Synopses & Reviews
Includes over 250 recipes, reflecting Japanese culinary history from ancient to modern times. The recipes tell how to: choose and fillet a fish for sashimi; make a rolled omelette; grill a chicken yakitori-style for a glossy exterior; make miso soup, sushi, and sukiyaki; make your own sweet pickled ginger and udon noodles, and much more. Since the recipes are organised in familiar categories, you will learn to incorporate them into a western meal as well as how to serve them in a Japanese-style dinner. Along the way, you will glean fascinating bits of information about Japanese culture and history.
In the first comprehensive introduction to Japanese cooking for the U.S. market in two decades, Hiroko Shimbo Beitchman gently and authoritatively demystifies for Western cooks this elegant and tasty cuisine.
