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,

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.
I picked this up after reading all the reviews, but it's not as good as I was hoping. It a small book and doesn't have very many recipes.Published 5 days ago by Cindy Q.
There wasn't as much content on cooking as I wanted. It only had about 10 dishes. But still enjoyable to flip through.Published 15 days ago by Megan Doan

I really thought that it would be worth the $13. I mean, who hasn't wished to know what manga characters are eating and try it ourselves? The book was too basic. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Aldana
