    Helped me fall in love with the cuisine again I took Japanese in college and fell in love with their cuisine then, but I never attempted making it at home because I thought it would be too difficult. When I ran across this book for the kindle I decided to see if it was possible to make a few dishes myself. I was happily surprised to realize I could many many dishes fairly easily.

    A nice variety of recipes, but no pictures.

    Pretty pictures, I could imagine a reader being very frustrated if they try to make these recipes without an Asian market nearby. I am lucky in that we have an entire Asian community in Denver and many of the shopkeepers speak adequate English to share tips and offer guidance on substitutions if an ingredient is not available locally. One heads up: Ramen is not anywhere as simple as those ramen packages you buy for a quarter.

One heads up: Ramen is not anywhere as simple as those ramen packages you buy for a quarter. It is not something that you can just whip up out of a trip to the fridge and the cupboard. And rice for sushi is an art form. If anything, I now have a greater appreciation for the art of preparation and fresh ingredients when I eat at a Japanese restaurant and flinch at the menu prices.

    In this day and age, a cookbook like this should have a picture of every recipe. This doesn’t. It is an excellent guide for Americans who want to begin Japanese cooking. I now know that I don’t want to do that, so for me the book was about 1.5 stars. If you do, a solid 3.5 and only that low because it needs more pictures.

    I'm glad I borrowed this from hoopla through my library instead of purchasing it. While the directions are detailed and easy to follow the book is seriously lacking in photos. I doubt they would include pictures in the print version and not the ebook, maybe I'm wrong... I'm glad I borrowed this from hoopla through my library instead of purchasing it.

    Neil, Central patron, August 2018, 3 stars: This is your usual recipe book without many photos or any step-by-step pictures. Got some good ideas from it; however, I wouldn't purchase a copy for myself. Thank you for libraries!

    Great choices I appreciate all the choices available in this particular cookbook. I like that there's a range of classic foods to try, including several vegetarian and vegan options.

    Well, these are simple practical recipes. I have no idea how recognizable they can be to a Japanese.

    Japanese food is one of my favorites cuisines. I love dining at Japanese restaurant and enjoy the variety of food and flavours they offer. I was hoping that this book would give me the confidence I needed to attempt cooking such lovely food. It did not succeed. Although the recipes seem simple enough, the dish preparation is quite intimidating. The book contains nonetheless wonderful facts and tricks and the recipes all look delicious.

I am sure I will eventually find the courage to try preparing one dish and see if this is something I can do or if I should just stick to going to Japanese restaurants to enjoy this wonderful cuisine.

    Love the first chapter on "The Basics of Cooking Japanese" which is very informative and sets the tone of the book on how all the recipes can be used in coming up with a traditional everday meal. I do strive for a meal that's tasty, but also pleasing to the eye, has a variety of textures and temperatures, and balanced. Most of the recipes seem comforting and the one that made me smile the most is for tsukune, the skewered chicken "meatball".
