    Doable, delicious, and simple!

    I’ve enjoyed this Japanese cookbook. There are tons of helpful tricks and I could learn a lot about Japanese cooking. I’ve made two recipes out of the book and everything came out tasting very good. The author knows what they are doing when it comes to putting together Japanese cuisine. Each recipe was described in detail so you have an idea of what you are aiming to make, and the author does a good job in explaining what certain ingredients are and the best substitutions if the ingredient is not easily accessible. The cooking instructions are simple so they are not too hard to recreate. If you live near an Asian Supermarket, you will not have any trouble finding the ingredients in this book. The book goes over basic tips which are helpful even to seasoned cooks who aren’t too familiar with Japanese cooking techniques. My suggestion would be to write a list of the specialty ingredients used out the book so that you can stock your pantry ahead of time. Overall, this is an informative and practical cookbook for anyone who wants to eat authentic Japanese food at home and choosing this book is a good choice. If you really want to eat and learn Japanese food, you wouldn’t need to look at others until you master this one. I look forward to making more recipes out of this book.

    Great resource for cooking Japanese food at home!

    I’m a huge fan of Japanese cuisine, which is why I decided to take a look at this book. I’ve never tried making sushi, or any other kind of Japanese food, at home and the idea intrigued me. Not being even close to a professional chef, this book was perfect in helping me experiment. The directions where clear and simple – anyone can easily follow the different recipes. Fabulous resource that made me confident I can make any dish I want in the future. I was pleasantly surprised that there weren’t any grammar errors in this book! This isn’t my first book read from the “Excel” series of books, which is one of the big reasons I went with it. They have had some issues before with needing corrections but this one was pristine. It was fantastic. I’m looking forward to the next book I read in this series. It was interesting to read and no errors. I can’t ask for anything in a book, not even in one of my favorite fantasy novels. There is one part of the book I did not like, which is why I’m giving it 4 out of 5 stars: the entire first chapter of the book. Well, there aren’t really chapters, but I’m talking about the “Opening” and “Starters” sections. They were meant to be a type of introduction to the book, but it didn’t do a great job of doing that. I didn’t really see how it had anything to do with leaving the basics of Japanese cooking, it was nonsense that didn’t get me into reading further nor prepare me for what I was about to read. It was completely unnecessary. The book would have been so much better without these two sections at the beginning. Still, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in making Japanese food themselves. It has fantastic advice, and clear instructions. There’s no way to mess up with how simple the writer made following the recipes. Anyone trying these out can feel confident that they can make their favorite Japanese food as well as a native, and allow themselves to feel comfortable to try new dishes not included within the book’s pages. Anyone even considering trying to make this type of food themselves should read this book first!
