JAPANESE HOME COOKING COOKBOOK
In Japanese Home Cooking, Sonoko Sakai takes a homemade approach to Japanese cooking, offering instructions for making everything from noodles to miso by hand. Don’t be intimidated—with the right ingredients and her expert guidance, you’ll learn to rely on a few basic recipes which will be used as the basis for dozens of delicious meals. Start by making the Bonito and Kombu Dashi (p. 27) and Shoyu Tare (p. 105), then explore from there. Try a classic Miso Soup (p. 120), Onigiri (Rice Balls)(p. 133), Ramen with Yakibuta Pork (Braised Pork Belly) (p. 255), or one of Sonoko’s many modern spins, such as Homemade Granola with Lucky Beans (p. 171) or Mochi Waffles with Tatsuta Fried Chicken (p. 175). Every recipe will build your confidence and make you hungry for more.
