This was my first book on Japanese cooking when I got married over 40 years ago. . It has been used so much that it has tattered pages, soy sauce stains, and hand written notes. It’s my “Velveteen Rabbit” of cookbooks.

The first thing I noticed about this oversized tome was that it has a very lengthy and excellent section on ingredients (pp. 11-64).

The major drawback I see, however, is that Andoh assumes that you can get your hands on authentic Japanese ingredients and doesn't offer many tips on substituting if you can't. This is good if you want to create authentic Japanese dishes, but if you just don't have easy access to iriko or Japanese mountain yams, the recipes may seem forbidding.… (mais)
