For those who love to eat Japanese food but are a bit intimidated by unfamiliar Japanese ingredients and cooking process, Let’s Cook Japanese Food!: Everyday Recipes for Authentic Dishes by Amy Kaneko is a wonderful cookbook to own in your kitchen! Today I’m excited to give away this cookbook to one JOC reader!
Amy’s cookbook provides popular Japanese home-style recipes and helps you become more knowledgeable about Japanese cooking. At the end, you and your family’s tummies will be well-satisfied.
Amy is an American married to a Japanese husband and she learned Japanese cooking from the best—her mother-in-law and sister-in-law. Her cookbook brings her culinary experience to your kitchen. Using easy-to-find ingredients, familiar techniques, and authentic flavors, you won’t believe how simple it is to make real Japanese food!
Home-style Japanese cooking is demystified in this refreshing and informative cookbook. Amy presents her acquired knowledge in an appealingly designed book with Japanese graphic motifs and color photos.
The recipes themselves are a mix of family favorites and restaurant dishes Amy learned to recreate at home, from the familiar foods available in Japanese restaurants in the U.S. to Japanese home-style favorites, like Gyoza and Tempura, as well as Yoshoku dishes combining Japanese and Western influences, like Curry Rice, and Omurice, an omelet stuffed with tomato-y chicken fried rice.
In a helpful glossary, Amy identifies the basic ingredients and equipment needed to recreate these recipes in an average Western kitchen. Chapters devoted to Tofu and Eggs; Vegetables, Fish and Shellfish; Meat and Poultry; and Rice Noodles and Dumplings intersperse recipes with boxes that highlight Japanese traditions and recollections on Amy’s time living in Tokyo.
