5.0 étoiles sur 5 At its worst, it is impressive 28 juillet 2002
Par Pumpkin King - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is not just a great Japanese cookbook. It is a great cookbook in general. Not content to merely compile a series of recipes, Shizuo Tsuji adds descriptions of cooking techniques unique to Japanese food, insight into Japanese culture, and more importantly he imparts valuable knowledge on how to understand and appreciate Japanese cuisine.
He divides the book into two parts. The first part begins with a discussion on how meals are prepared and composed. Then he explains ingredients, tools, and techniques that are frequently used in the book. He ends part one with recipes that are intended to be a basic introduction to various types of Japanese food (each "type" employs different methods of preparation and cooking, such as frying, steaming, etc.) The recipes are traditional Japanese meals that you would encounter if you went to Japan.
Part two is all recipes, again divided into the same types that part one is divided into. However, these are slightly more complex and they build on the techniques learned in part one.
This is a book that can be used by beginners or more advanced cooks. It is definitely a useful reference for all those who love Japanese food and would like to know how to make it and how to enjoy it authentically.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Informative, entertaining, and a must-have 19 janvier 2000

I have been searching a long time for a comprehensive book on Japanese cooking because I grew up with a mother who was a fantastic cook. Unfortunately, she never used recipes or measuring devices, so I have been struggling to duplicate the many delicious dishes of my childhood to no avail. This book is the answer to my quest. The recipes are very authentic, and the author talks about the history of the various recipes and cooking techniques. This enhances the enjoyment of the beautiful cuisine. I feel like I am back home in Mom's kitchen!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a book for beginners... 27 décembre 2001

If you love Japanese food, this is the book for you. More then simply a list of recipes, it really does describe Japanese cooking as an art form. Unfortunately, if you are a newcomer to Japanese cooking as I myself am, the book is not particularly useful in the kitchen. First of all, the book sacrifices ease for authenticity. This means that many of the dishes require ingredients or tools that aren't readily available at the local supermarket. However, if you want to really learn how authentic Japanese food is prepared, look no further.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 UNDERSTANDING Japanese food 1 septembre 1996
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
While there are certainly recipes in this book, the author
does not barrage you with hundreds of impossible to
replicate dishes. Instead, this is the book to read if you
wish to undersdand what Japanese food is and is not, and
how to bring Japanese home cooking into your own home.
This is a book to read, cover to cover, not one to pick
up for the purpose of grabbing a couple of recipes.
Of all the cookbooks I own, this is the first
international cookbook that really gave me an
understanding of WHAT it was that I was preparing.
And that is more important than any recipe

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best cookbooks I own. 8 juin 2006
Par Nick Kallen - Publié sur Amazon.com

A great cookbooks is not merely a set of recipes but a treatise on the art of cookery. A Simple Art is, quite simply, a great cookbook--equal to anything written by Julia Child, Paula Wolfert, Alice Waters, and so on. I consider it as indispensible as anything in my cookbook collection, even reference works by Harold McGee and the like. And I don't even cook Japanese food!

The first half of the book is mainly partitioned into chapters by cooking technique: a chapter on steaming, on simmering, on grilling, and so forth. Each chapter begins with a very thorough essay on the equipment you need and the dos and don'ts of the technique. The quality of advice here is rarely equalled by any other cookbook.

There's a spectacular chapter on scaling, gutting, and fileting fish, and dressing chicken. There are elaborate diagrams for four fileting techniques for both roundfish and flatfish. I have seen no other book on fish cookery (as comprehensive as Mark Bittman's and Alan Davidson's books are) that can compare to this book's thoroughness in fish prep. It's not just cutting, but there are dozens of techniques, from various methods of salting to blanching that I've seen nowhere else. Many ingredients in the book beyond fish are treated with similar thoroughness. The chapter on grilling has over a dozen techniques on how to skewer ingredients!

One of the most impressive aspects of the book is it's obsession with presentation. This is the only book I own that elaborates a systematic approach to dressing the plate. Recipes are not just concluded with an afterthought of "this dish looks great garnished with X". Rather, the text addresses each ingredient and the cooking technique concerning the how's and why's of presentation. This is, perhaps, a peculiarly Japanese phenomenon: an obsession with presentation matched by an obsession with systemization and rule-following. But is a wisdom, and technique, that can be easily adapted to any cuisine.

There are so many other wonderfully thorough discussions in the book. The author goes into some detail about the construction of meals--that is, of how one puts together a succession of courses to create a harmonious whole. This is a fascinating cookbook, a must have for the cookbook obsessed. It's a great reference work covering topics of cookery overlooked by many of the great cookbooks in English. Yes, this is a book about Japanese cuisine, but the knowledge here applies well beyond it.
