A Cook's Journey to Japan is a marvelous collection of recipes based on one woman's journey through the simple, yet evocative, everyday foods found across Japan. This heartwarming—and hunger-inducing—book recounts the author's journey through Japan as she gathered recipes from everyday Japanese people—from wives, husbands, mothers and fathers to innkeepers and line cooks at cafTs. The recipes are adapted when necessary to capture the authentic flavors and spirit of simple but delicious home cooking.
A Cook's Journey to Japan is a lovely introduction to the authentic foods eaten by everyday Japanese people.
