5.0 out of 5 stars a beautiful tribute to the people and culture of Tohoku, March 31, 2012
Elizabeth Andoh has again produced a marvelously detailed, well explained, and beautiful book that this time focuses on the Tohoku region, the area devastated by last year's triple disasters of earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident on March 11th. Elizabeth is a long time resident of Japan and an expert on Japanese cuisine. She is an award winning cookbook author of beautiful volumes, Washoku and Kansha, but this is her first ebook. She experienced the earthquake in her kitchen in Tokyo and felt she must do something to give back to her adopted country. Amazing that she could get this ebook ready in time for the first anniversary of the disasters. She and the publisher (Ten Speed) are contributing half of all profits to assist the recovery of Tohoku. You can read more about the details in the book. This book is for anyone who is interested in Japan as you will learn a lot about an off-the-beaten track part of Japan. Even if you don't plan to cook the dishes, you will enjoy learning about traditional dishes, the people of this region and how they are coping now. If you thought you wanted to do something to help but didn't know how, this is the answer. Then tell your friends.

1.0 out of 5 stars Swivel Sweeper quickly gives out, October 13, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered the Swivel Sweeper because I am ill and cannot manage even a small vacuum. I've used it only several times. Now all of a sudden the battery charger is not working. I called the company, Ontek, and they have all sorts of excuses and tell me to go to Amazon since I purchased it here. I hope Amazon will honor the 90-day warranty, not even 2 months has gone by. Ontek is another example of a company that sells products and doesn't care a bit about whether they work or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Treasure by Elizabeth Andoh, November 26, 2010
I am lucky enough to know Elizabeth and have been in her kitchen with her. Every dish she makes, every meal, is amazing in flavor, presentation, balance. Here is another chance to learn from her how to prepare delicious, nutritious Japanese cuisine suitable for our small planet -- the vegetarian and vegan traditions. Each recipe has been painstakingly researched and checked multiple times with an international crew of volunteers so that you can follow the recipe wherever you are and know that you will create something wonderful. This is a beautiful cookbook but it is more. Even with my many years of experience in Japan, I always learn something new from Elizabeth. And Elizabeth imparts her holistic philosophy of living and appreciating (kansha) through the descriptions and notes of this book. She is also passing down precious knowledge of generations of temple and kitchen cooks. This second volume, added to Washoku: Recipes from the Japanese Home Kitchen (2005), is cause for celebration and appreciation of Elizabeth's dedication to introducing, interpreting, and preserving Japan's culinary traditions. A beautiful gift for yourself and loved ones during this season of gratitude and hospitality.
