"A collection of more than 100 recipes that introduces Japanese comfort food to American home cooks, exploring new ingredients, techniques, and the surprising origins of popular dishes like gyoza and tempura. Japanese food is often thought of as precise,austere, and time-consuming. But along with the high (kaiseki and tea ceremony) there is also the low (food carts and fried chicken). Through recipes, fascinating narrative, and lush location photography, Tadashi Ono and Harris Salat explore Japan's longhistory of homey fare, which has now firmly taken root in the US. Some of the dishes are already loved here, like ramen, soba, tempura, and gyoza, but others, like Japanese-style fried chicken, rice bowls and okonomiyaki, and savory pancakes, will be deliciously delightful surprises, perfect for a weeknight meal or weekend entertaining"--Provided by publisher.

I own a copy of this book and use it frequently. It is mostly comfort-food and has many variations on the same type of dish. I recommend trying some of the ramen recipes and the gyoza!

Great, simple recipes for Japanese weekday foods. Okonomiyaki, donburi, tempura and more. Delish!
