  • Grilled ginger chicken with shoyu tare

      Though this says "grilled" the instructions are for a broiler which didn't really work to crispy up the chicken. Next time I would do it on the grill. Fortunately, the recipe makes enough shoyu marinade to work for a couple of batches.

Publishers Text

The essential guide to Japanese home cooking--the ingredients, techniques, and core recipes--for seasoned cooks and beginners who are craving authentic Japanese flavors.

The art of Japanese cooking lies in the twin appreciation of ingredients and process. Using high-quality, in-season ingredients in simple preparations is the way of Japanese home cooking that Sonoko Sakai promotes in this book of essential recipes. Beginning with the Japanese pantry, the key flavors of Japanese cuisine are explored alongside recipes for the fundamental building blocks of this cuisine, including dashi, pickles, soybeans, rice, and noodles. From there, the basic okazu recipes offer solid everyday recipes that explore these foundational flavors. With a gentle voice and a passion for authentic Japanese cooking, Sonoko then dives into dishes for breakfast; vegetables and grains; meat; fish; noodles, dumplings, and savory pancakes; sweets; preserved fruits; and beverages. Throughout, discover lessons on traditional Japanese techniques, from working with fish to slice sashimi and make home-style sushi, making quick and fermented pickles, and cutting noodles. With stunning photos by Rick Poon, stories of food purveyors in California and Japan, and over 100 recipes, this is a generous book that will appeal to home cooks of all levels.
