Reviews - What do customers think about The Manga Cookbook?

nice and easy intro to Japanese cooking  Aug 13, 2008
this book is awesome if you're interested in cooking Japanese cuisine. And if you're a beginner then all the better! Each recipe in this book is simply explained with pictures and words to make the cooking experience as easy as pie. I would defiantly recommend this cooking book to anyone interested in learning some basic Japanese recipes.
Fantasic  Aug 9, 2008
This book is fantastic, wonderfully written, animated, and the meals are fantastic to boot! Cute, fun, and delicious. Now, to find a bento box to bring with me into the office, Pokemon, or Digimon?
cute basic cook book  Jun 30, 2008
This is a decent beginner's cookbook. It would be great for children or teenagers who want to learn how to cook. The photos in the beginning are fine, but it's a bit disorganized because of the lack of photos throughout the book especially for different recipes.
Who knew Japanese recipes were so easy?  May 13, 2008
This book is fantastic. I just received my copy a few days ago and have already made several of the recipes with no problem at all. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. The book is full of pictures (color and b&w), extended notes on the customs and history surrounding the recipes and has lots of suggestions for switching up your recipes. I think this book is perfect for anyone just getting into Japanese cooking or bento and would be great for beginners as well as seasoned chefs. I was surprised at how much useful information they stuffed into this book! A great value for your money!
Great book for bento  Apr 18, 2008
I am active on LJ's bento community and was happy to find this book. It is GREAT if you are into bento. There isn't much out there in English for bento (I have several Japanese bento cookbooks), and this has very clear, easy to understand instructions for all kinds of Japanese recipes, and includes a whole bento section on how to pack a box and suggestions of what to include. Step by step instructions for making a train bento, and garden bento, also instructions for making several decorative foods to go in bento.

It's organized really well, with recipes and illustrations, then a page of text that tells about the recipe or food item - history, culture, stuff like that. For example, I finally learned about those traditional bento of scrambled egg, ground meat and sliced snow peas over rice. They're called Soboro, and there are some examples of making pretty bento with that. The recipes look easy enough that my 12-year-old said she wanted to try some.

All in all, I wish I'd found this book a year ago when I started being interested in bento, but it's not just for newbies. I am seeing recipes in here that I really want to try, including some cute bento ideas that I haven't seen or thought of. Lots and lots of recipes, it's a thicker book than I expected.

If you are a big Manga fan, you might expect the book to be read back to front/right to left, Manga-style, but it's not. It's American manga, which is fine with me. Very easy to read. Much more helpful and "how to" than the (very cute) "Face Food" book.
