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
