Ipes Very informative Shame there aren t pictures I know we shouldn t judge a book by its cover but this book is ike a piece of art in itself Beautiful ooking book and excellent recipe Rarely do I write reviews but this book deserves all the stars I can give it I collect cookbooks and whenever Phaidon releases a new one I automatically purchase it Although the books are always beautifully presented the uality of the recipes can vary and some of the books have practically no recipe notes at all suinting at you VEGANFortunately for me this cookbook checks all of my boxes The presentation is gorgeous with full color photographs This is one of the best written Japanese cookbooks I ve come across It is written with a foreign reader s unfamiliarity towards the cuisine in mind so it explains what the dish is about and ultimately how the author puts her twist on it or how she replaces certain ingredients to build flavour And the recipes are 100% easy to follow Useful for both professional chefs and home cooks Very good and detailed recipes and information on the various dishes of Japan I only wish it was broken down by region and that there were photos of every completed dishOtherwise it s a great book for japonophiles Visually the cook book is stunning print uality is also uite good and it got tons of recipes as wellThe issue is the methods and materials it calls for a ot of the recipes are fundamentally the same such as sakemirinsugarsoy sauce for soupstir fry or dashimiso with xyz Some recipes are uninspired because it can be a typical stir fry but made Japanese because it has Japanese vegetablesOverall very disappointed this heavy book could ve been halve the size because there are so many filler Great cook book with a variety of recipes. Contain insightful notes alongside the recipes The dishes soups noodles rices pickles one pots sweets and vegetables are simple and elega.
