Publisher's Weekly credited award-winning author, Elizabeth Andoh's second cookbook with broadening "her standing as America's chief interpreter of Japanese cuisine". A bone fide expert, now with six cookbooks under her belt, Andoh studied traditional Japanese cooking in Tokyo before launching her own English language culinary arts program there teaching Japanese cuisine in 1972. In 'An American Taste of Japan', cooks will find delicious and acccessible recipes such as Potato Salad with Wasabi Mayonnaise and Tomato and Shiso Bisque that maintain the heart and soul of Japanese cooking while benefitting from Andoh's artful improvisation with Western twists.
