Highly recommended: If I’d found this book first, it would have been my study book!!
Master Reference Book if you want to study Japanese cooking. I’ve had this book since it first came out, but the index uses so many Japanese words without English translations it’s hard to use until you are familiar. Perhaps after the first edition, the index was updated.

Do any of these cookbooks have a recipe for chimaki? That is sweet rice cooked in a bamboo leaf that also contains a ginko nut and some cooked chicken (or pork) with shitake mushroom. At least that is how my Japanese mother made them. Thank you.
