Title: Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art by Shizuo Tsuji
Category: Nonfiction, Cookbooks, Japanese Cuisine
Review: I got this book from Amazon and it definitely did not disappoint. The author divides the book into three sections. One is a very informative section on the ingredients, knives, things like simmering and boiling, sushi, tea, etc… It is such a well written account of all the different things that go into Japanese cuisine. Part two is the recipes. Although there are recipes in the first section, these are given to use the basic recipes in the first part. Like the author teaches you how to make dashi. So in the second section, you can make dashi with whatever recipe you want to make. The third section is an appendix with comparable weights and fish types with calories. I love this book. I recommend you get it if you love Japanese cuisine.
