JapanEasy by Tim Anderson
Many people are intimidated at the idea of cooking Japanese food at home. But here, MasterChef winner Tim Anderson reveals that many Japanese recipes require no specialist ingredients at all and can be whipped up with products found at your local supermarket. In fact, there are only seven essential ingredients required for the whole book: soy sauce, mirin, rice vinegar, dashi, sake, miso and rice. JapanEasy is an introduction to the world of Japanese cooking via some of its most accessible (but authentic) dishes: think gyoza, sushi, yakitori, ramen and tempura. Recipes are clearly explained and rated according to difficulty, making them easy to follow and even easier to get right. If you’re looking for simple, relatively quick yet delicious Japanese dishes that you can actually make on a regular basis, the search stops here.
