Readers are guided through the cookbook by three cartoon characters: a young girl, Miyuki, who calls herself the kitchen sensei; Hiroshi, her boyfriend who likes to eat; and the feline-like mascot, Coo, identified as the book's culinary mastermind. In addition to recipes, more information about many of the dishes and ingredients are presented through Miyuki's notes. --San Francisco Chronicle
After many of the recipes is additional information, often quite fascinating, about the dishes and ingredients. You will learn plenty of Japanese culinary terms as well as elements of Japanese culture. --Richard Auffrey, The Passionate Foodie,
A "Top 10 Popular Paperbacks" selection for 2011 --American Library Association
CHIHIRO HATTORI is best known as the artist whose delightful illustrations in Manga University's Kanji de Manga series have taught thousands of students how to read and write Japanese. An avid cook, she created some of the cute bento designs in this book, and has been known to sneak an Usagi Ringo or two into the lunch her husband carries to work.
For a young lady that is interested in Japanese cooking. The book is very cleverly designed with graphics to help prepare the recipes. Very nice addition to a Bento box.Published 18 days ago by Marilyn
