In the past North Americans have not been great fans of Japanese food, perhaps feeling it to be too alien in style and ingredients. But at last revolution has taken place: witness the popularity of sushi and its appearance in every supermarket as well as the explosion in the number of noodle bars. Consumers too have rediscovered a liking for fish and now even raw fish. Much has also been written recently about the health benefits of miso and green tea. Japanese food is finally being appreciated.

It is in fact a cuisine rich in foods which are good for you; it has been shown to help prevent disease, and is above all tasty. The style of eating too is conducive to good health: lots of little dishes with small portions, eaten slowly over the course of an evening. It is like Spanish tapas or Greek meze, and just as convivial, especially when accompanied by sake, Japanese rice wine.

Simplicity is one of the surprising and pleasing elements about Japanese cooking. It is similar to Mediterranean cooking which relies on fresh ingredients, simply prepared.

Shirley Booth, who lived in Japan for many years and has taught Japanese cooking to both Japanese and foreigners, gives us a wonderful, engaging history of Japanese food, its styles and traditions-from Imperial cooking to temple cooking and the food of the Yatai or street vendors. She explains every aspect of this great cuisine, the ingredients, the techniques, the essential equipment, the importance of color and presentation. She then goes to share over 200 recipes which she has cooked time and time again. Soups, broths, dumplings, noodle dishes, tempura, sushi, pickles, wonderful tempting classic dishes such as Eggplant with Miso Topping, Broad Beans and Wakame and some simple dishes with a new twist such as Tofu with Peanut and Pumpkin Sauce.

Japanese food is very much the food of today, try some of these recipes and discover a whole new world of sensational flavors and textures.

Author Shirley Booth is a good writer. Initially I borrowed this book from the library, but after I read it for a few minutes I realized what a little gem I had in my hand. I just had to buy it! I am enjoying learning about Japanese food and its origins, and I have had fun making some of the recipes. Good work, Shirley Booth!

I do love this book!

I rarely feel the urge to buy cookbooks because I don't want to pay 15 or more dollars for 2 recipes. Normally, I'm content to borrow a book from the library once and copy any worthwhile recipes down. I've now borrowed this book 4 times from my library and I've bookmarked all the recipes I want to try. However, I've just realized that I have over half the book marked so I came to amazon to buy it.

I lived in Japan for a year and a half and the while west coast cities can find decent Japanese food usually, the Japanese population in Utah is hardly existent. This book contains authentic recipes for all the foods I've missed since coming home. Including a long sought after recipe for sakura mochi. Best of all, even in Utah, I haven't had trouble finding any of the ingredients called for so far.

The book has a handy introduction and glossary to help people understand terms and ingredients used throughout the book so anyone can learn to make all the delicious meals contained within.

I highly reccommend it!

Great book for the novice Japanese cook. Contains information on all the unfamiliar ingredients, basic stocks, differences in products, glossary, and several hundred recipes. Managed to make a decent Miso soup on my first try! Highly recommended!

I'm very passionate about Japanese cooking and have many cookbooks. This is the best, it does not only give you all the classic recipes from sushi to terriyaki and tempura, but the book also contains a lot of healthy excellent dishes.
The background of the ingredients and the recipes the author gives is so interesting you keep on reading. Unfortunately there are few pictures but that should not keep you from buying this book.

This book is really great. I've used a number of its recipes and processes and have not been disappointed. Having lived for some time in Japan, cooking from this book has brought back memories. It also helps decipher all those 'strange and abominable' products in the local Japanese market. Rather than settling for instant noodles, I can now brew up an excellent broth and cook noodles just like the yakuza flunkies outside the subway stations. Her explanation of sushi rice has also been very helpful.

For a beginner (particularly a Westerner intimidated by salt-embalmed fish), I think this book is an absolute must-have. Never in my life would I have imagined that I would have a use for dried sardines, and was pleasantly surprised to find what a flavorful broth they can be coaxed into producing with Ms. Booth's patient guidance.
