Recipes and stories to learn all about Japan's food culture.

Recipes, anecdotes, histories and stories, maps, techniques, stylings, utensils, native ingredients -- this is a colorful invitation to discover the look and aromas and flavors of Japan.

How to make sushi? What is the traditional method of making miso soup? How do you make a full Japanese meal? What are the most frequently cooked dishes in the izakaya? How do you garnish and pack a bento box?

Here are the answers in a charmingly, and beautifully, illustrated paperback book.

From how to use Japanese knives, chopsticks and cooking vessels, to familiar and unusual seafood (and seaweed!), Japanese vegetables, fruits and soy, the illustrations are clear, atmospheric and empowering. The text runs from ingredients and places to buy them, to simple dishes and whole meals.

The design is really fun, and this is a handbook every cook will want to own -- or give to friends and family.

  • Attractive, accessible introduction to Japanese cuisine and culture.
  • Value priced.

Laure Kie has written many Japanese cookbooks. She was born in Tokyo to a Japanese mother and a French father. Her many trips to Japan helped her learn about the richness of Japanese cooking culture, which she imparts through her books and cooking classes.

  • social media advertising targeting people interested in Japanese culture.

A charming illustrated guide to the basics of Japanese food... As much a guide to eating in Japan as cooking your own food at home. - Stained Page News

This book is priceless as it explores Japanese cuisine through beautiful artwork, anecdotes, histories, stories, recipes and more. It showcases different styling, ingredients and even the utensils you'll need. Want to learn all about creating sushi? How about the proper way to use chopsticks, knives and choosing the correct soy. The book is slim, compact, yet delivers a powerful storyline. - Rita DeMontis, Toronto Sun

This little nifty reference work contains many recipes, anecdotes, histories, stories, maps, techniques, stylings, utensils, native ingredients -- all wonderfully illustrated with watercoloured drawings. It can answer many questions: how to make sushi, miso soup, bento boxes; how to use Japanese knives, chopsticks, cooking vessels, seaweed. There is a special section on ramen and its many distinctive regional variations. Very lovingly produced, right down to the Japanese pictographs. - Dean Tudor, Gothic Epicures Blog
