Item description for The Japanese Kitchen: A Book of Essential Ingredients with 200 Authentic Recipes, by Kimiko Barber...
Until recently, Japanese cooking has remained in the shadows, but the remarkable and long-awaited upsurge in the popularity of sushi and noodle bars and, subsequently, the growth in the availability of ingredients, have put the country firmly on the culinary map. In The Japanese Kitchen Kimiko Barber invites you on a personal tour of her country's exquisite cuisine. She presents 100 essential ingredients and 200 recipes from all over Japan. Every ingredient, from the familiar to the unknown, has its own separate entry giving in-depth background information on history, appearance, taste, manufacture, buying, storing, culinary use and health benefits. Recipes range from the classic, such as Miso Soup with Tofu or Chilled Soba Noodles with Wasabi and Soy Sauce: to the more contemporary Marinated Tiger Prawns in Sweet Ginger Vinegar, or delicious Seared Beef Tataki.

The Japanese Kitchen Cookbook Jan 9, 2007
I was thrilled to be able to purchase this book through this site. It was out of print in Australia and my father was desperate to have it. The book is the best collection of authentic Japanese recipes we have ever seen.
a brilliant introduction to Japanese food Feb 6, 2005
The ingredients-led entries in this book make it easy to follow and I was amazed by how simple many of the recipes were. The five that I've made have all worked extremely well and been delicious. The photography is stunning and really brought alive the world that is Japanese cooking. I read about the book in Newsweek and thoroughly agree it's one of the best cookbooks I've found in the US during 2004. Just fab.
Japanese cuisine revealed Jan 10, 2005
Not only do you learn about the various ingredients which are indigenous to the country, and essential to their cuisine but it is a trip thoughout the country, through pictures and text to the wonderful sights and aromas of this mysterious land. Familiar foods are prepared in totally different ways, and new ones are there to explore. With the advent of many ethnic food shops and open markets catering to many different cuisines one is now able to put a Japanese dish on your own table. Good reading without cooking as well.
