"If you haven't done so already, buy My Japanese Table. The recipes are absolutely delicious, but yet healthy enough to be able to take one more helping of miso-glazed eggplant or that wonderful yakisoba!"—FoodieMommy
Bestselling author and food writer Debra Samuels uses her unique skills and deep love of Japan to make the cuisine of her adopted country attainable in My Japanese Table.
Bringing a wealth of experience and a great passion for Japanese cooking to the table, Debra introduces the aesthetics and quality food that are the hallmarks of Japanese cuisine. She learned through her years in Japan that true Japanese homestyle dishes are easy to prepare once you master a few basic techniques. And now that authentic Japanese ingredients are available in most supermarkets, Japanese cooking has become far more accessible than ever before.
The recipes in this book, the result of decades spent teaching and preparing homestyle Japanese dishes, include familiar favorites like Hand-Rolled Sushi and classic Miso Soup and less familiar but equally welcome dishes such as Lobster Rolls with Wasabi Mayonnaise and Fried Pork Cutlets. There is also a chapter on the increasingly popular bento (obento) lunch boxes, along with a wonderful selection of desserts, including the delectable Mochi Dumplings with Strawberries. All of the recipes come with stories and cooking tips to help bring the sights, aromas and tastes of Japan into your kitchen at home.
"With the basic recipes, you also have the tools to create your own Japanese inspired recipes. If you have desired to prepare Japanese cuisine at home, this book is a great way to start."—PassionateFoodie
