Below are some pages you might find helpful for learning about Japanese cooking at home.
My Japanese Cookbook Project
I’m slowly cooking my way through Hiroko Shimbo’s The Japanese Kitchen.
The ingredients for Japanese cooking can be confusing, difficult to find, or mysterious if you live outside of Japan. But they are always interesting—even if you make a mistake! I’ve put some pictures of ingredients I’ve used on this page.
There are some recipes for cooking Japanese food that you’ll use over and over again.
Recipes by Cooking Method
This page is an index of the recipes I’ve prepared. Most recipes are from my project book, but some are my own or from other sources. A proper Japanese meal consists of foods with different colors, a variety of textures, and several cooking methods.
Reference Recipe Books
I have several Japanese cookbooks that I like and refer to often.
