A Cook's Journey to Japan: 100 Homestyle Recipes from Japanese Kitchens by Sarah Marx Feldner

Cook delicious and authentic Japanese meals in the comfort of your own home with this easy-to-use homestyle Japanese cookbook!

At twenty-eight years of age, Sarah Marx Feldner quit her job, sold her house, and moved to Japan to pursue her passion for Japanese food and cooking. A Cook's Journey to Japan is the result of her adventures traveling throughout Japan, sampling home-cooked meals and collecting recipes from Japanese friends and avid cooks she met along the way. A Cook's Journey to Japan is a totally unique Japanese cookbook that tells the story of the everyday dishes that Japanese people eat at home—including many popular standards such as:

  • Salmon Teriyaki
  • Tonkatsu
  • Chicken Yakitori
  • Sushi Hand Rolls
  • Miso Soup with Baby Clams
  • Yaki Udon (Stir-Fried Noodles)
The difference is that these homestyle dishes are ones you will never see in any other cookbook. And as we know, foods prepared at home by experienced cooks are far more tasty—and also more healthy—than the restaurant versions found in most Japanese cooking books.

Sarah's fascinating stories about her travels, and her heartfelt and sometimes humorous insights about the people she met who shared their recipes and kitchens with her, will entice you to take up your knife and cutting board to begin your own journey through the kitchens of Japan. Her detailed menu suggestions, clear instructions and reassuring tone make it incredibly easy to prepare delicious Japanese cuisine in your own kitchen at home just the way the Japanese do.

After graduating from college, Sarah Marx Feldner headed to Japan to teach English for a year. There, she befriended Hitomi and her food-loving family who introduced her to a countryside, a style of cuisine, and an overall aesthetic that she had never experienced before and quickly fell in love with. A couple of years later, Sarah got the idea to write a Japanese cookbook to tell people about her discoveries, and she returned to Japan and traveled the country collecting recipes and stories from experienced cooks who opened their homes and their hearts to her.

A talented food stylist and cooking instructor, Yumi Kawachi is well versed in Japanese and French cooking. She is based in Tokyo and works for major Japanese magazines.

Noboru Murata is one of Japan's most accomplished photographers. Based in Tokyo, he does work for Japanese Elle Deco and other leading lifestyle magazines.

Mmmmmmm! Luscious cookbook with luscious food!! This book is a delight to the eye, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Don't just stop with reading, though. Dive in and cook up some fabulous Japanese food! My husband loved the Sesame Seared Beef! Yakitori Chicken Skewers, Chicken and Vegetable Rice Medley, Breaded Pork Cutlets, Five Color Salad, Spicy Pan-Seared Eggplant and Toasted Sesame Cookies--there's something for everyone! If you don't have a good Asian market, you might have some trouble getting some of the ingredients, so that dropped the rating a bit. However, there's still plenty in this cookbook to make you go back again and again. I definitely recommend it! I received a copy of this book from Tuttle Publishing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
