A beautifully written cookbook and certainly a great guide for anyone who wants to understand Japanese ingredients and how to best use them. The photography is also beautiful. I just wish the photos were captioned and referenced.

This is a lovely cookbook that reads like great non-fiction. Though the recipes are not new to anyone already familiar with Japanese cuisine, this is still very enjoyable. Every section has an introduction to that aspect of Japanese cuisine, its history, tradition, and significance. She also does a wonderful job of making "traditional" ingredients accessible for this side of the world. There is a lot of love and reverence in this book.
