As a bonus, the book suggests a number of ways to make your kitchen more efficient, offering guidance on kitchen organization, shopping, and how to stock a kitchen. Mari explains that she adapted these to US kitchens from her formative experience in small Tokyo kitchens. It works.
All in all, a pleasant read and a useful tool. Mari's instructional detail is good--particularly for novices--and her tone is readable and warm.
A word about the recipes in the book: they are really accessible. My other cookbooks together probably have a good thousand recipes or so, but most of them take way too much time or require some rare ingredient I always have trouble finding or are just generally a pain to make. That's not the case here. These are good basic recipes that are easy enough to make and can be taken in a bunch of different directions if you're a more experienced cook or want to change things up. It's nice to flip through a book and be able to do any of the recipes if the feeling strikes you. Quality definitely trumps quantity here.
Oh yeah and I'm now a vegetarian, and the book is great. If a meat recipe looks good, just use mock meat or tofu instead.
Mari give us recipes, tips to storing food, tips to be organize at cooking, and more others handy tips.
What I really got surprised more was reading she wasn't a degree and professional chef, though she was born with the gift... I feel completly identify since I am so... I always have thought that when you do things using your gift, things are much better, since everything is naturally, with a romantic flow so you enjoy more your life
Mari's Kitchen Wizard Flexipes is a great cookbook for all of us, busy people, trying to cook healthy meals. I highly recommend it.
I eat only fish, but the rest of my family are meat eaters this method and Mari's easy recipes help me feed my whole family so much easier without waste. The way I make my shopping list has changed. Oh my, did I mention the Mushroom Bisque. I am making it today! I love this book and Mari Suzki's writing and gentle instruction are so helpful. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to eat healthier and make delicious meals more efficiently.
