Incredible Japanese Cookbook!

Discover the best basic Japanese cookbook with a ton of recipes, techniques, and more. Find out where to purchase the Traditional Japanese Recipe Book with English Translation, and explore the possibility of obtaining it outside Japan through Kinokuniya Books.

A chef I met in Japan gave me the Traditional Japanese Recipe Book with English Translation. It's one of the best basic Japanese cookbooks I've ever come across, with a ton of recipes, plus a bunch of techniques in the back, from broth ratios to cuts of meat to knife skills, and more. What a book! The English is a little wonky, but well-worth purchasing. I'm not sure how you'd get it outside Japan, perhaps through Kinokuniya Books. Worth a try.
