Picture a generous bowl filled to the brim with steaming hot broth. Its perfect surface intricately patterned with tiny droplets of oil; the flavor enhanced with algae, miso, dried fungi and fish sauce. Thin and springy noodles nestle in the base, while a sashimi-marinated cut of pork or chicken sits atop, the meat meltingly tender after up to 48 hours of simmering. A bobbing soya-marinated egg and an array of toppings add a colorful finishing touch. There are few dishes as addictive and universally popular as ramen. From backstreet Tokyo diners to the hottest establishments in LA, via the chic laid-back ramen bars of London’s Soho, you will find the most complex of flavor combinations, all in a single bowl. This stylish book will transport you to the vibrant streets of Japan via your own kitchen, with stunning reportage photography and 50 mouthwatering recipes, from homemade broth and noodles to complementary dishes and sides such as soba, udon, gyoza, okonomiyaki, takoyaki and tempura. Includes dual measures.

Let's Cook Japanese Food!: Everyday Recipes for Authentic Dishes

Let's Cook Japanese Food!: Everyday Recipes for Authentic Dishes Lowest new price: $12.65
Lowest used price: $16.12
List price: $24.95
Author: Amy Kaneko
Brand: Kaneko Amy

Turn your idea of difficult Japanese cooking on its head with this new edition of “Let’s Cook Japanese Food!’ People love Japanese food but think they have to go out to a restaurant to get it. But it’s something everyone can cook, easily and deliciously, at home! When you think Japanese food—it’s sushi, or ramen, or raw fish—or just too hard. Amy Kaneko, an American married to a Japanese husband, learned from the best—her mother-in-law and sister-in-law—and 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 that is this delicious.

Home-style Japanese cooking is demystified in this refreshing and informative cookbook. After marrying into a Japanese family, the American author was taken under her mother-in-law's wing to learn the ins and outs of Japanese cooking. Here she 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 Kaneko learned to recreate at home. Yet readers will see few of the familiar foods available in Japanese restaurants in the U.S. Instead, the book illustrates how to make Japanese home-style favorites, like Gyoza and Tempura, as well as Yoshuko dishes combining Japanese and Western influences, like Curry Rice, and Omu Rice, an omelet stuffed with tomato-y chicken fried rice. In a helpful glossary, Kaneko 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 the author’s time living in Tokyo. 

From Amazon.com:
This is a wonderful cookbook for those who love to eat Japanese food but are a bit intimidated by how complicated preparing it may seem. I've been making simple Japanese dishes for years, but I wanted to add more than just onigiri, sushi and udon into the mix. Amy Kaneko's book provides a good variety of dishes that are not that difficult to prepare and are sure to make your family's tummies satisfied. Even the pickiest of eaters (kids) will find some of Amy's recipes rather tasty.
