Japanese Cook Books

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was hoping someone could point me in the direction of some good Japanese cook books. More importantly, i'm looking for one that has recipes for traditional sauces. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I can't give you an exact cook book, but this link has lots of Japanese sauces: https://www.youtube.com/user/ochikeron

Check it out!

A classic is Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art by Shizuo Tsuji.

 

There is a 25th anniversary edition available new  and an older edition available used on Amazon.com. There are two separate pages for the older and newer editions.

 

it is a pretty thorough look at traditional Japanese cooking and there is probably as much explanatory text as recipes. 

 

There are several classic sauces in the index, which you can look at online on the Amazon.com pages for the books.

I agree that Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art is very good, well worth having in your collection. I have the older edition.

I also recommend Tsuji. Very thorough and informative.

 

Two more from my library:

 

Washoku by Elizabeth Andoh. Less thorough on the techniques than Tsuji, but good recipes. I based my last fish entry in the challenge thread on that one. Pretty much focussed on traditional home cooking.

 

Kaiseki by Yoshihiro Murata, Stunningly beautiful array of kaiseki dishes. Way beyond my level though - as to be expected when Ferran Adrià writes the introduction. The recipes are very short and expect you to have a firm grounding in Japanese techniques. A very good inspiration when it comes to minimalist yet artistic plating.
