“...Crack open Tokyo Cult Recipes, which is rich with street photography and a large collection of original recipes, ranging from street specialties, such as udon and yakitori, to home staples, including gyoza dumplings and nikujaga (a sweet and hearty beef stew).” (Gear Patrol, The Year's Best New Cookbooks)

From the Inside Flap
Enjoy the best Japanese food at home with more than 100 dishes from the gastronomic megacity, including favorites such as miso, sushi, rice, and sweets.
While many people enjoy an almost cult-like reverence for Japanese cuisine, they're intimidated to make this exquisite food at home. In this comprehensive cookbook, Maori Murota demystifies Japanese cooking, making it accessible and understood by anyone interested in learning about her native food culture and eating well. Inspired by Murota's memories of growing up in Tokyo--cooking at home with her mother and dining out in the city's wonderful restaurants and stands--Tokyo Cult Recipes offers clear and concise information on key basic cooking techniques and provides guidance on key ingredients that home cooks can use to create authentic Japanese food anytime.
Tokyo Cult Recipes is packed with dozens of mouthwatering, easy-to-make recipes for miso, sushi, soba noodles, bentos, rice, Japanese tapas, desserts, cakes, and sweets, accompanied by helpful step-by-step photographs. This fabulous cookbook is also a visual guide to this extraordinary city, bringing it colorfully to life in gorgeous shots of food markets, Tokyo street scenes, Japanese kitchen interiors, and more.--Eater.com

1. A very detailed miso soup section, starting from types of miso to the possible combination of vegetables fitting to each miso type, color photo of each combo provided; (good-bye, seaweed & tofu soup from your local Japanese restaurants)
2. Several traditional bento recipes(names you actually see in a Japanese local food store/Laws*n), providing sub recipes for each dish featured in the bento;
3. A good selection of preserved vegetable recipes;
4. Extensive gyoza (Chinese dumplings) recipe section, listing a few different methods and stuffing combinations. As an experienced gyoza maker I can see the knowledge & efforts spent on putting them up;
In summary I am very satisfied with my purchase and recommend this to someone who is generally familiar with Japanese food but wanted to have that one step further of flavoring up their normal menu.

Please remember, before you buy ANY foreign cookbook, that foreign cuisine necessitates foreign ingredients. These ingredients are not always going to be readily available, easily substituted, or cheap if found. This book does not bend the knee to this idea of westernisation of recipes, you may find yourself disappointed if you cannot find some of the ingredients.
Bought this for myself, but know at least one person (a guy!) that I'd like to buy this for....
Given to my partner who wants to get into cooking and loves Japan, it was an amazing present.
The information is incredible and very knowledgeable and helps with the Japanese spelling, pronunciation and history of foods.
