This cookbook teaches authentic Japanese cuisine, and is filled with delicious looking color photographs of the recipes that you can try. The author is one of Japan's most popular television hosts. She has also authored 140 books. She knows what she is teaching us here. This book gives you foolproof recipes that anyone can tackle. All the ingredients are easy to find, and each of the recipes is accompanied by precise directions and color pictures of exotic meals that could come from your own kitchen.

I was immediately attracted by the recipe for simmered pumpkin squash. It uses saki and soy, and the finished result looks great. Right next to this easy recipe is one for Asparagus Saute'. This is my kind of food! It looks great and most of it is good for you.
