Ok, so I've always loved Japanese food, especially Sushi! (The Zen House is amazing, BTW!) This book is soo easy to read & follow, has easy recipes, shopping lists, and dinner plans, as well as stories from the author. READ THIS BOOK!! It may change the way you look at food/eating! It opened my eyes to new tastes/flavors/cooking methods, for sure! Read it!! You'll love it!
And this site is a great list of Japanese recipes from various places from about.com, be sure to check it out!
...And here's another great link..
P.S What was your fave recipe?
