Japanese Recipe Books Review


Posted by Hello

Once in a while I found a great book that has reasonably easy recipes to follow. I guess, unless you are a true Chefs, it's really not practical to buy recipe books that has too complicated ingredients, tools or procedures. This weekend, I was lucky enough to buy 3 Japanese Recipe Books. I bought that 3 books for each different reason. This one is I bought it for it's practical recipes.

Another one I bought it because it's very educational, it uses local/native ingredients and for each ingredients, it has 2-3 recipes. The author also explain everything you need to know about the ingredients like how it looks like, taste, how it grow, nutritional benefit, etc.

Then the other book, I bought it just for knowing what high-end Japanese food looks like. The book was produce by the most famous Shunju Japanese Restaurant in Tokyo.



Beside these 3 new books, I also has others. Some are good and some are bad off course. I will show you Japanese recipe books that I think worth to buy them. Here is the list :

1. My oldest Japanese recipe book - "Japanese Cuisine"

2. "Cuisine of the World - Japan" - this book consistently producing great results in my kitchen. As you can see the price tag. This book probably the cheapest Japanese Recipe Book that I have. I bought it from Costco.
