About the Author
No surprise that Kentaro turned his attention to cooking. Like his mom, he is known for creating fun, easy-to-make recipes--albeit with a more Western flavor--and also has appeared on television, magazines, and radio, becoming popular with the motto "Nice and easy, practical food with style." He is known to have revolutionized Japanese conceptions of good eating. His best-selling cookbooks are all about transforming convenience-store products
into attractive hot meals.
He frequently incorporates his artistic training working as a chef and illustrator for magazines and book stores, creating logos, and has co-authored works with his mother. To date, Kentaro has authored or co-authored more than 15 cookbooks.

Any of the food in the book can be cooked for the dinner and keep it in the fridge for the bento the next day, so it can be a time saver.
This may not be the first choice if you are looking for how to fix dishes use cheese, tomato, chicken broth, meat based western dishes but if you already know all that, this makes a nice change.
Highly recommend! =)
But I've become annoyed at having to flip through the entire book to locate the recipes that have appealed to me. There is no excuse for a cookbook not to have an index!
