    Book Description
    From Publishers Weekly
    The attractive Periplus Cookbooks series (The Food of Bali; The Food of Thailand) presents Asian national cuisines for preparing in Western kitchens. This volume offers a compact but thorough survey of the fundamentals of Japanese food, highlighted by more than 70 recipes. A long, helpful glossary of ingredients precedes the recipes, and brief essays on the evolution of Japanese food are informative (e.g., the impact of shojin ryori?the "vegetarian Buddhist temple fare"?with its emphasis on providing five colors and six tastes in a meal). Recipes are "grouped to follow the basic pattern of a Japanese meal" rather than by main ingredient. Starters include clear soups, vegetables and sashimi. Entrees range from sushi to yakitori (chicken on skewers) to remarkable fish recipes such as Kelp-Grilled Tuna, in which the miso-and ginger-seasoned tuna is baked in kelp; also featured are duck, pork and beef dishes. Subtle desserts include the ever-popular Green-Tea Ice Cream. This concise, practical cookbook is a solid introduction to a particularly beautiful and healthy cuisine.
