A nice sized book on Japanese cooking with great information on the how to, on what to buy and what to look for at the market. Hayter gives easy recipes, simple directions and the sushi section and its simple break down on preparation is worth the purchase. There are meat dishes, tofu dishes (soups and salads) and several seafood selections. I have yet to try any of the recipes but the recipes in here look (a picture comes with ever recipe)great. Enjoy.
Type is a little bit small - but he recipes are very approachable and very authentic. Our Japanese family members and friends say, "Wow - authentic, simple, straight forward Japanese food!"
I have the highest praise for this simple cookbook. I've had it for a decade, and it's probably my most used cookbook over the years. Why? The recipes are easy, and delicious time and again. Especially notable are -

- steak with garlic and soy sauce, with extreme flavor drawn forth by sake and butter
- stir-fried pork in ginger and onion, with a carmelized flavor again enriched by sake
- pork meatballs in sweet soy sauce, which is always received with delight by a crowd of hungry gatherers
- chicken livers with peppers in a sweet soy sauce, a quirky but delicious departure from standard American livery fare
- deep-fried chicken nuggets, with little more than cornstarch, ginger and lemon
- broiled salted trout, essentially naked except for salt and soy sauce
- many quick and easy vegetable recipes

All-in-all, I think you'll find great enjoyment in this book if you like delicious, easy Japanese food.
If you love Japanese food, including sushi, you know how expensive it can be to go out to the restaurant all the time.
I guarantee that if you buy this book, you will save $100 a week, by being able to make your own Japanese food.
The recipes are easy to follow, the pictures are in vivid color, and best of all, the food tastes great!
This was the very first Japanese cookbook I found, and have been using ever since - over 5 years of use, and lots of soy sauce coloring the pages. :)
Apparently I got super lucky buying this book when I did--getting an earlier print WITH dust jacket! It's really worth the money I spent. I still haven't made many dishes from it, but the tonkatsu alone is a big request. The pork balls are really awesome, even if the sauce does come out a bit thin. So far, nothing but deliciousness has come from this purchase. If I could go back, I'd buy it again.
