A Cook's Journey to Japan

100 Homestyle Recipes from Japanese Kitchens

Foreword by: Elizabeth Andoh / Photographs by: Noboru Murata
"Dozo, meshiagre! (Go ahead, dig in!). Sarah will guide you well… " —Elizabeth Andoh, from her foreword

At twenty-eight years of age, Sarah Marx Feldner quit her job, sold her house, and moved to Japan to pursue her passion for Japanese food and cooking. A Cook's Journey to Japan is the result of her adventures traveling throughout Japan, sampling home-cooked meals and collecting recipes from Japanese friends and avid cooks she met along the way. A Cook's Journey to Japan is a totally unique cookbooks that tells the story of the everyday dishes that Japanese people at home—including many popular standards such as:
  • Salmon Teriyaki
  • Tonkatsu
  • Chicken Yakitori
  • Sushi Hand Rolls
  • Miso Soup with Baby Clams
  • Yaki Udon (Stir-Fried Noodles)
The difference is that the home-style versions of each of these dishes are ones you will never see in any other cookbook. And as we know, foods prepared at home by experienced cooks are far more tasty—and also more healthy—than the restaurant versions found in most cookbooks.

Sarah's fascinating stories about her travels, and her heartfelt and sometimes humorous insights about the people she met who shared their recipes and kitchens with her, will entice you to take up your knife and cutting board to begin your own journey through the kitchens of Japan. Her detailed menu suggestions, clear instructions and reassuring tone make it incredibly easy to prepare delicious Japanese meals in your own kitchen at home just the way the Japanese do.

"Making these dishes was fun—they were soulful and totally suited to everyday cooking. I followed every recipe to a T—each worked very well, was precisely written and easy to prepare. Ultimately, the thing I liked about the book is that it worked. It's refreshing. It was to the point and exact."—Food52.com, Tournament of Cookbooks, 16 Most Notable Cookbooks of 2010
