What Japanese cooking is really all about 9 mai 1998
Par Panola Man - Publié sur
Format: Broché
While Tsuji and Andoh have risen far above most other authors of the "Japanese cookbooks" genre, Homma is really at the pinnacle in helping the Westerner understand what Japanese cooking is all about in the cultural context. Whereas most books provide a workable recipe and a useful picture of the presentation, allowing one to do a reasonable job of "cooking a Japanese dish in an American kitchen", this book provides the social and historical context in which the ingredients and the dish exist, so that one understands what one is doing when using a recipe. Not to be found in other books are discussion of breakfast and recipes for it; once you've made and enjoyed okayu you'll do it again and again (and eventually invest in a neuro-fuzzy-logic rice cooker with timer so that the okayu is waiting for you in the morning). The book has many useful illustrations not found elsewhere, such as three ways to set a breakfast tray. Homma's sincere desire to convey the "spirit of Japanese cooking" and the stories he tells add incomparable charm. Highest recommendation

Great Simple Every Day Food 8 décembre 2002
Par Ryan - Publié sur
Format: Broché
First, this is not your typical cookbook. You will probably first notice that there are no big flashy pictures of perfect looking food. Next you will see that you have to read about 100pages to get to the recipes. But it is well worth it.
The first half of the book deals with the history and ingreadiants of Japanese country cooking. The second half has all the recipes. For some of the ingreadiants you will probably have to try an Asian market, but over all most of the recipes are pretty simple, healthy, and taste great. A lot of these dishes are also not the type of food that you will find at the typical Japanese restrant, they are what you will probably encounter if you are lucky enough to be invited to someone's house for dinner in Japan.
Also nice is that many simple things such as how to cook rice in a pot or cut up a whole fish are covered for us less expert cooks out there.
So if you like more Asian food or just want to try something different I really recommend this book.

Serious history and cooking too. 28 février 2000
Par "pduvall" - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Although the recipes are interesting and useful, you have to know something of Oriental cooking to use them. This is not a beginners book.
The heart of the book is not the recipes, though. It's the Japanese Cultural history. This is absolutely the best ethnography of rural Japan ever written, in my experience.
If you've ever wondered what life in rural Japan, or, for that matter, any rural subsistance society was like, this is where you'll find out. There is a lot of our own history in this book, if you care to look.

Two great books in one! 6 septembre 2009
Par Christopher Tricarick - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I love this cookbook, and, unlike several other cookbooks which I also love but don't use very often, I use it all the time.

The first half or third of the book is a long essay on the eating of traditional working people--farmers and fishermen--in Japan. By the time you finish it, the whole domestic economy, the nature of the simple Japanese home, and the origins of the cuisine will have become clear. There is no superficial gauziness here--we get facts, delightfully presented.

Next we get the recipes, arranged by meal. These recipes are mostly simple, and they use the same few ingredients again and again, so that once you buy the handful of staples called for you can try most of the things in the book. In fact, the recipes encourage thrifty recycling and practical use of left-overs--the dried shiitakes and kombu and fish from your dashi can themselves become side dishes for the next meal. There are a few strangely baroque recipes--one chicken dish calls for the same chicken to be successively simmered, then fried, then simmered again--but most of the recipes are such that a busy person can make most of them in a short time. This is also a cookbook for the amateur: there is none of the fussing with precise measurements, and cutting things into exactly the right shape, and simmering things for a precise amount of time, which many Japanese cookbooks involve. Remember, this is peasant cooking--the cooking of people who have a fire in the middle of their kitchen and eat sitting around that same fire. The amazing thing is that Homma makes that cooking accessible to us. And it tastes great!

Practical & delicious 12 juillet 2006
Par hapax-legomenon - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I've almost worn out my copy, & have recommended it to everyone I know who is interested in down-to-earth, country-style Japanese food. Not only does the author give ingredients & quantities, he explains why & how various cooking techniques evolved. You won't find the usual Japanese restaurant favorites, but there are other books for those. The breakfast ideas & recipes alone make this worth reading -- a great alternative to eggs-toast-bacon-cereal.

One minor quibble, which may have been remedied in this edition: the indexing & general organization of the book are a bit tricky. Dishes are usually listed by their Japanese names, or by their method of cooking, & the page number references in the index are not always reliable. So get a pack of Post-It notes or some bookmarks (my copy is full of them), but by all means get this book.
