Text and practical notes that Andoh provides help readers master the rhythm and flow of the washoku kitchen Much than just a collection of recipes WASHOKU is a journey through a cuisine that is rich in history and as handsome as it is healthful Awards2006 IACP Award WinnerReviews“This extensive volume is clearly intended for the cook serious about Japanese food” Minneapolis Star Tribune“ scholarly yet inspirational a foodie might just sit back and read for sheer enjoyment and edification” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Washoku is not the end all perfect beginners guide to Japanese cooking that I was promised Looks pointedly at all the glowing 5 star reviews There are admittedly some great features but Japanese cooking is new to me and I'm finding it to be far from intuitive I blame my own lack of familiarity – but I did have high hopes that this cookbook would be my guide Unlike the author I don’t have an awesome Japanese mother in law to show me what to do each step of the way I just have this book and it isn’t as expansive as I’d hoped I would give this cookbook a much better rating if I could see and understand what I am trying to make in advance Specifically I need detailed instructions regarding critical preparation steps within each recipe And there are simply not enough photographs Cooking is a multi sense experience and visuals of completed recipes cannot be underestimated Without photographs I cannot know if what I am making is something close to the written description I won’t even know if the dish is going to be served cold roasted fried or sautéed until I read through the entire recipe and even then it’s not always clear Beyond that I felt that a lot of the dishes seemed repetitive and there was no mention of small dish meals I imagine there must be a diverse collection of Japanese recipes out there in the world of cookbooks and maybe even one with instruction I'll just have to keep lookingA few notes on the positive Washoku is a beautiful book it is a hearty hardcover that would last many years of regular use The pages are clear and crisp and what images are included are indeed gorgeous I enjoyed the backstory about the author's observations and learning process in the kitchen with her Japanese mother in law Very sweet and personal The first third or so of this book is what I loved most and find worth praising It is a very informative and detailed guide to individual ingredients broken into sections by product type This guide alone is incredibly helpful and I would love to see an expanded version with images for reference
