Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"This book is both an intimate portrait of Nancy’s life on the farm, and an important work that shows the universality of an authentic food culture.” (Alice Waters)

"The book offers a breadth of information, with lessons about Japanese products and techniques, and instructions for everything from homemade tofu to udon noodles. But for me, the recipes for simple vegetable dishes, often flavored with only a bit of miso or a splash of sake, are the most fascinating" (David Tanis, New York Times)

"In her sumptuous exploration of Japanese dishes, Nancy Singleton Hachisu expertly blends all of these, creating a memorable collection that will appeal not just to cooks but to anyone who appreciates a simple, lovingly prepared meal." (Elizabeth Millard, Foreword Reviews)

"With simple, nourishing dishes and richly detailed stories of Japanese farm life, Nancy Sington Hachisu creates a whole world between the fabric-bound covers of this book. Once you step inside, it's very tempting to stay." (Emma Christensen, The Kitchn)

"Essays on the author's years in Japan and lush photos make the book as great a pleasure to peruse as it is to cook from." (Karen Shimizu, Saveur)

Présentation de l'éditeur


Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2012: USA Winner, Best Japanese Cuisine Book


"Our life centers on the farm and the field. We eat what we grow." --Nancy Singleton Hachisu,
Japanese Farm Food offers a unique window into life on a Japanese farm through the simple, clear-flavored recipes cooked from family crops and other local, organic products. The multitude of vibrant images by Kenji Miura of green fields, a traditional farmhouse, antique baskets, and ceramic bowls filled with beautiful, simple dishes are interwoven with Japanese indigo fabrics to convey an intimate, authentic portrait of life and food on a Japanese farm. With a focus on fresh and thoughtfully sourced ingredients, the recipes in Japanese Farm Food are perfect for fans of farmers' markets, and for home cooks looking for accessible Japanese dishes. Personal stories about family and farm life complete this incredible volume.
American born and raised, Nancy Singleton Hachisu lives with her husband and teenage sons on a rural Japanese farm, where they prepare these 160 bright, seasonal dishes. The recipes are organized logically with the intention of reassuring you how easy it is to cook Japanese food. Not just a book about Japanese food, Japanese Farm Food is a book about love, life on the farm, and community. Covering everything from pickles and soups to noodles, rice, and dipping sauces, with a special emphasis on vegetables, Hachisu demystifies the rural Japanese kitchen, laying bare the essential ingredients, equipment, and techniques needed for Japanese home cooking.
"Nancy Hachisu is...intrepid. Outrageously creative. Intensely passionate. Committed. True and real. I urge you to cook from this book with abandon, but first read it like a memoir, chapter by chapter, and you will share in the story of a modern-day family, a totally unique and extraordinary one." --Patricia Wells
"This book is both an intimate portrait of Nancy's life on the farm, and an important work that shows the universality of an authentic food culture." --Alice Waters
"The modest title Japanese Farm Food turns out to be large, embracing and perhaps surprising. Unlike the farm-to-table life as we know it here, where precious farm foods are cooked with recipes, often with some elaboration, real farm food means eating the same thing day after day when it’s plentiful, putting it up for when it's not, and cooking it very, very simply because the farm demands so much more time in the field than in the kitchen. This beautiful, touching, and ultimately common sense book is about a life that's balanced between the idea that a life chooses you and that you in turn choose it and then live it wholeheartedly and largely. Thank you, Nancy, for sharing your rich, intentional and truly inspiring life." --Deborah Madison
"Nancy Hachisu’s amazing depth of knowledge of Japanese food and culture shines through in every part of this book. You will feel as if you live next door to her...savoring and learning her down-to-earth approach to cooking and to loving food." --Hiroko Shimbo
"Taking a peek into Nancy Hachisu's stunning Japanese Farm Food is like entering a magical world. It's a Japan that used to be, not the modern Japan defined by the busyness of Tokyo, but a more timeless place, a place whose rhythms are set by seasons and traditions and the work of the farm. Japanese Farm Food is so much more than a cookbook. This book has soul. Every vegetable, every tool has a story. Who grew this eggplant? Who made this soy sauce? Nancy doesn't have to ask, "Where does my food come from?" She knows. Here's a woman who grows and harvests her own rice, grain by grain. Not that she asks or expects us to do the same at all. What she does offer is a glimpse into her life in rural Japan, with its shoji screens and filtered light, and recipes from her farm kitchen that you can't wait to try." --Elise Bauer, SimplyRecipes.com
"Japanese Farm Food is a lovely book about the culture, landscape, and food of Japan, a true insider's view of the Japanese kitchen, from farm to table, by a passionate and talented writer." --Michael Ruhlman

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Un régal pour l'esprit et les papilles 9 janvier 2014
Format:Relié
Acheté un peu par hasard, ce livre est une vrai perle. Il sort de l'ordinaire des bouquins de cuisine (recette/photo et basta), en nous faisant plonger dans le quotidien très riche (dans le sens "plein") de la famille de l'auteur, vivant dans une ferme au Japon. Nombreuses photos de qualité (même si parfois un peu petites et pas toutes légendées).
En plus des recettes, très bien détaillées, et des nombreuses explications sur les produits et techniques, on se laisse entrainer dans les "à côtés" du quotidien, le rythme des saisons, la vie sociale, dans un espace où le temps semble s'écouler différemment... Humilité, travail, passion, générosité : telles sont les valeurs qui inspirent cet ouvrage.
Le seul bémol : si vous voulez faire toutes ces recettes, il vous faudra le potager et le jardinier japonais qui vont avec! (car de nombreux légumes sont quasi-introuvables en France).
Un livre accessible, dense, complet, et passionnant (nécessaire aux adeptes de la culture japonaise traditionnelle)!!

I loved reading this book. Nancy is American and she traveled around Europe. Her way of telling her story, of telling about her life made me travel to Japan although I've never been there. I love the pictures whether of the food or of her surroundings. It's a book about food, about Nancy's experience in Japan, in cooking, about a culture so far away from ours. It's one of my favorite book about Japan cuisine because it's more than a cookbook.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An alluring, beautiful book that offers do-able, hands-on, straightforward recipes with Japanese techniques 9 septembre 2012
Par I Do the Speed Limit - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
As an avid gardener I'm always looking for cucumber, eggplant, leafy greens and pickle recipes. What simple, distinctively new (to me--an American cook) recipes I found for the overflowing bounty from my gardens! Plus there are plenty of new ways with fish, chicken, meat and eggs.

UPDATE Jan. 2, 2013: See bottom of review.

As an adventurous cook I'm always looking for the next unique technique that keeps me curious and will keep me on my toes learning in my kitchen. (One of my mottos is "If you are not learning, you're dying." This cook book provides so many new techniques that I found my heart racing as I turned each page.

As a conscientious and concerned member of this world in which we live, and as an independent and individual thinker, I found the author's memoirs full of important thoughts and viable opinions.

While you will find peace and comfort in this book, in its writing and in its beautiful pictures, it is not a book of calming haiku poetry and a return to an older time and pace--but the grace of haikus and the respect for the old ways runs harmoniously through this book. The author's writing is creative and descriptive, both in her memoirs and her recipe instructions. The author and (what we learn of) her husband seem to be hard-working, down-to-earth people who love food, love their family and friends and try to give back to the community and the earth. There is an aura of respect in this book; such respect: For the spiritual, for the land, for the food, for life and for others.

While the author writes about her life in Japan for the past 20-some years, she is still very much an American; with her Viking stove, her collections of patinated chests, boxes and vessels, her malachite counter tops, her busy schedule, her own business (an English-orientation school), and her involvement in organizations. This unique combination of her "baggage" adds individuality and panache and flair to her recipes.

Some ingredients and tools will be hard to find, but can be ordered online. It will be great fun learning! The pages of resources alone are worth the price of this book. (I found a great resource for all kinds of varieties of bok choy and a resource for beautiful donabe pots.) But there are plenty recipes that you can become acquainted with, without a hunt for ingredients. If you are waiting for your copy of this book to be delivered, pick up some good quality soy sauce, miso, mirin, vinegar, unhulled white sesame seeds and cukes and you'll be ready to roll the day your book arrives.

The unfamiliar ingredients will seem daunting, but if you take it one ingredient at a time, you'll have no problems, because the unknown will be balanced by the simple, straightforward techniques.
If you've been thinking lately that the food you are now eating is just "too" full of flavors, (if you ever feel that way), you will find relief in this beautiful cook book.

I just received my copy of this book, but I've already read it cover-to-cover. I've already tried some of the cuke and eggplant recipes, a pickled vegetable recipe and a rice recipe. I can see this cook book will not disappoint!

Oh, boy, I want to keep writing and telling you about all the great small treasures in this book, but I realize a long review does not get read at all. Pick up a copy of this book now, then, when it starts winning awards and accolades, you can say you're already well-acquainted with it and cook from it often!

UPDATE Jan. 2, 2013: Recently, I found Washoku: Recipes from the Japanese Home Kitchen at my local library and I spent about four hours browsing through it. While I think it's a great book--loaded with information and well-worth having in your cook book collection if you are at all interested in Japanese cooking--I find this Japanese Farm Food to be more down-to-earth and usable. The recipes in Japanese Farm Food are simpler; with fewer ingredients and fewer steps involved in producing memorable results.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Much more than a cookbook 10 septembre 2012
Par Cecilyd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
What Peter Mayle gave us from his year of living in Provence, Nancy Singleton Hachisu has given us the incredible gift of her twenty five years lived in the Japanese countryside. This book is so much more than a cookbook. Nancy, an American from Palo Alto, California, raised three sons with her husband Tadaaki in his home village in rural Japan. This book is the story of that life told through food - the day to day harvesting and creation of beautiful meals prepared simply from ingredients harvested that day. As I turned the pages of the book and read phrases or gazed at the evocative images, I wanted to step into the scene and live the experience. Nancy, an accomplished chef before she moved to Japan, has managed to transcend cultures and bring us the simple, real food that used to be part of living. JFF is a masterpiece to be treasured!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A beautiful book with simple, fresh preparations and a deep respect for tradition 16 juin 2013
Par Bundtlust - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I had the good fortune to spend six months in Central Japan in 2010-2011; during my stay, I took four Japanese cooking classes in three different cities focusing on traditional cooking methods and regional specialties, including a class led by Elizabeth Andoh (author of Washoku: Recipes from the Japanese Home Kitchen and Kansha: Celebrating Japan's Vegan and Vegetarian Traditions). The act of making and preparing food according to tradition (including the concept of kansha, or appreciation) was a deeply spiritual journey for me.

I contacted Nancy Singleton Hachisu through her blog, and she was kind enough to send a review copy of Japanese Farm Food. When I opened it, it was an instant homecoming for me. Memories of prowling the morning markets at Takayama, admiring the kaleidoscope of pickles at Nishiki Market in Kyoto, or learning about the many varieties of sansai (wild mountain vegetables) at an Osaka department store food hall came rushing back.

After a compact look at Japanese farmhouse pantry staples and tools and a handy three-page visual dictionary of cutting and cooking techniques, you'll find the Japanese equivalent of munchies: tsumami. These are simple preparations that showcase the freshness of the ingredients, like ikura (salmon roe), edamame, eggs pickled in soy sauce, fried fish and Okinawan staple goya champuru (stir-fried bitter melon with egg and red pepper). The pecan miso was an absolute revelation; I used SOUTH RIVER ORGANIC 3-YR BARLEY MISO 1 LB, and the depth of the flavors was superb. The oil from the pecans (ground to a paste) complemented the salty umami hit from the barley miso and would be great as a dip for raw veggies. The soy sauce eggs make a great snack; these are traditional in homemade bento boxes.

One of the great pleasures of any Japanese market or department store food hall is browsing the huge assortment of pickles on display. I loved the section on tsukemono (pickles); these are an essential part of Japanese cuisine. There are several main pickling methods used, including massaging with salt, rice bran (nukazuke), or pickling in vinegar. Here you'll find smashed cucumber pickles with garlic, sweet-vinegared daikon and carrots, young ginger pickled in plum vinegar, and zucchini pickled in rice bran (additional pickle recipes can be found throughout the book). There is an extremely useful guide to vegetables by method at the very back that covers most of the common Japanese cooking/pickling methods.

Tofu and eggs get their own chapter; there's a straightforward recipe for homemade tofu and several excellent egg dishes including the traditional rolled omelette, egg custard squares with crab and spinach, and egg custard with flowering mustard in sour orange halves. I loved the idea of steaming chawanmushi in an orange shell instead of the traditional chawanmushi pots; it makes for a beautiful presentation, and the slight hint of citrus in the custard is a welcome addition. (For an excellent and easy primer on making your own soymilk and yuba, I recommend Kansha: Celebrating Japan's Vegan and Vegetarian Traditions.)

Comfort foods also make an appearance, including miso-broiled fish, teriyaki, deep-fried ginger chicken, gyudon and yakiniku. There's a primer on homemade udon and ramen, simple sushi and onigiri preparations, and many vegetarian options (the chapter on vegetables offers nearly *thirty* varieties of salads, tempura, stir fries and simmered veggies). Handy tips and sidebars offer additional suggestions and variations. Various staple recipes such as Japanese mustard, Japanese mayonnaise, dashi, ponzu, and several excellent vinaigrettes and dressings are worth the cost of the book alone (walnut-miso, sesame-miso, tofu-miso, etc.).

Along the way, the author frequently reminisces about individual dishes or ingredients, her multicultural family, her encounters with local Japanese farmers and traditional methods, and descriptions of local festivals and disappearing food traditions that read like talking to an old friend.

The graphic design also deserves a special mention; ai-zome (indigo textiles) are a visual theme throughout the book, including the beautiful fabric binding. The photos are stunning as well; there are gorgeous glimpses into Japanese gardens, local farmers hard at work in their fields and orchards, scenes of rural festivals and rice pounding, traditional kitchen tools, and closeups of farm-fresh produce as well as finished dishes. Unlike many cookbooks these days, the pages are matte, so glare/slippery pages is not an issue.

If I had to sum up Japanese Farm Food in two words, they would be "simple" and "fresh." Inside these pages are dozens of simple, tasty ways to prepare seasonal produce; most recipes include only a handful of ingredients and take mere moments to prepare, but the depth of flavor that is achieved (aided by umami in the form of miso and/or soy sauce) is nothing short of amazing. And one of the best parts is that the author calls for far fewer hard-to-find Japanese ingredients than many other Japanese homestyle cookbooks; this makes a huge difference for items that are not easily substituted (especially fresh vegetables / herbs). This is an absolutely gorgeous cookbook that nourishes the spirit as well as the body.

(Arigatou gozaimasu to Nancy Singleton Hachisu and her publicist for the review copy!)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Delivers everything the previews promised 6 septembre 2012
Par M. J. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This is the ultimate down to earth, realistic slow food movement cookbook - memoir - photographic volume that belongs in every foodies' library. The recipes are simple - the Japanese equivalent to the West Coast rancher food of my own youth. The main difference? the old-time skills are rural Japanese not the old country i.e. Finland. Living in Seattle, most of the Japanese ingredients including fresh vegetables. For some cooks, shiso leaves or yuzu juice may present a bit of a problem but everything is finable.

Although the stories behind the recipes are fascinating, the recipes also present another side of Japanese cooking with a bit of world-wide fusion tucked into the very traditional. Examples:
1. a sesame-miso vinaigrette with rice vinegar and rapeseed oil.
2. a charcoal-grilled yellowtail collar with soy sauce and daikon
3. new potato tempura
4. stir-fried snap peas with miso, red pepper, ginger
5. red bean rice
...
All in all this is a tribute to the universality of fresh food, simply prepared.

If this appeals to you, also consider Shiro Kashiba: Wit, Wisdom and Recipes from a Sushi Pioneer by Shiro Kashiba and Ann Norton (sorry product link is not working correctly).

This book looked really good from the previews I read. So good, I almost ordered two of them. I wish I had. The one I did buy is so precious I could never even think of lending it out to anyone.

I don't live in a place where I can buy any of the fish, so that makes quite a few of the things here undoable for me. I can't even buy non-red miso locally. So in a way, this cookbook is a bit of a pain. If you live in a big city you will probably have better luck. I'm in a town of 9000 that is 75 miles from anywhere.

Still, it's beautiful, and thoughtful, and filled with amazing looking things. I'm quite pleased with myself for having purchased it. I don't have many Japanese cookbooks, but this is easily better than all of the others combined.
