From the Author

"This book is full of modern Japanese food, the kind we Japanese eat every day. It's the food I've made for my family and friends, including Westerners, who all appreciate natural, good taste. If this book helps bring healthy, delicious Japanese home cooking to your daily table and adds even just a little to your life, then I couldn't be happier." —Yoko Arimoto

I've been a long time fan of Japanese culture and this book is terrific!
Kristen Warden
All the recipes are clearly written, and the author also gives plenty of useful tidbits that have come in very handy in the produce section in the supermarket.

It's clean, easy to read, simple format, and contains fairly simple recipes.

"Simply Japanese: Modern cooking for the Healthy Home" is definitely a keeper. Every recipe is based on honest food. I 'm not the kind of person who cooks or eats "low-fat" or fake stuff that's supposed to make you feel like you are eating something real. I'm not a vegetarian, nor am I a vegan. I LOVE MEAT. However, I like my food to be healthy in the sense that provides me with plenty of fibers, vitamins and healthy fats. I also love to treat myself to Asian cuisines once in a while. This cookbook exceeds all my desires. In Simply Japanese, every recipe focuses on flavor and high quality ingredients, and just happen to be reduced calorie!

The recipes are well organized and spread into different chapters which are,
1. Meat and Poultry
2. Seafood
3. Deep-frying
4. Vegetables
5. Tofu
6. Traditional Specialties
7. Rice and Miso Soup
8. Desserts.

My husband liked the nikijaga simmered potato and beef so much and I made it three times in two weeks. We have tried several other recipes and we were pleasantly surprised at how good and flavorful they are. The salmon teriyaki is divine, as are many of the others. I've learned to deep fry seafood. These recipes are contemporary and realistic, and most do not have exotic ingredients you have never heard of.

All the recipes are clearly written, and the author also gives plenty of useful tidbits that have come in very handy in the produce section in the supermarket. Unlike many cookbooks that just give recipes and pictures (although they are beautiful), in this book, there are lots of background writing about each of the recipes selected. The technique and equipment notes in the back of the book are very useful too.

Truly a wonderful book.

This book is for people who are new to Japanese cooking ( not necessarily to the cuisine itself) and who wish to gain a basic understanding of the simpler flavors of the traditional Japanese fare. Arimoto Sama's book is easy to follow, ingredients are simple and effortlessly acquired in most health food stores or super markets, and are also affordable. The simplicity of the ingredients is in keeping with the genre of cuisine, also easy for the more daring palette or cook to build upon. Having lived in Japan for more than a decade there are some staples which, I had taken for granted this book brings them home - particularly the recipe for homemade tofu, which has to better than buying it in a plastic box at the supermarket!

I read this book from cover to cover in one evening. Kudos to Ms. Yoko Arimoto (the author) on bringing not only wonderful, modern Japnaese dishes but a great read to all of us who are wishing to pursue a healthy life and eat well. We now have "Japanese night" once per week trying recipes along the way, and they are very healthy and delicious meals. My husband and two little girls love them.

A really great little book with some tempting recipes. Tried several of them and enjoyed them all. Still working on the others. When given a choice between maple syrup and mirin I would always choose the mirin. More genuinely Japanese. The book is great value for the money.

First,this book is beautiful.I couldn't put it down the first few day after I got it;

Second,all the receipt is reasonable easy to make(as long as you have a Japanese super market nearby).

I tried two receipts so far(I got the book for one week now),both turn out great.Can't wait to try more.
