A Cook's Journey to Japan is a marvelous collection of recipes based on one woman's journey through the simple, yet evocative, everyday foods found across Japan. This heartwarming--and hunger-inducing--book recounts the author's journey through Japan as she gathered recipes from everyday Japanese people--from wives, husbands, mothers and fathers to innkeepers and line cooks at cafes. The recipes are adapted when necessary to capture the authentic flavors and spirit of simple but delicious home cooking.

A Cook's Journey to Japan is a lovely introduction to the authentic foods eaten by everyday Japanese people. Recipes include: Miso Soup with baby Clams Pan-Fried Noodles (Yaki Udon) Sushi Rice with Toppings (Barazushi) Sesame-Seared Beef Salmon Teriyaki Spicy Pan-Seared Eggplant Oolong Tea Chiffon Cake Green Tea Smoothie

"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
