My friend introduced me to Japanese home cooking. Japanese food has the reputation of being complex and ritual based, however, as my friend Jamie reckons, it is because not many people understand that basic Japanese food is also based on comfort. I love this book, as it starts with basic/ master recipes and then takes you on a journey around Japanese food, one that goes beyond sushi and into the heart of Japan and its cuisine. The photography is beautifully evocative, and the recipes work perfectly in home kitchens, Japanese or otherwise.
