With the MMF focused on food this week, I thought it would be a fun time to review a book I recently acquired to help me make some Japanese cuisine at home. While I bought a variety of books to add some Asian flair to my kitchen, this book has been one of the most enjoyable and simplest to understand and prepare.
The Manga Cookbook: Japanese Bento Boxes, Main Dishes, and More! is a compilation of Japanese foods that manga readers may have seen their favorite characters eating. It was written by Yoko Ishihara, a Kagawa Nutrition University certified nutritionist and chef, and drawn by Chihiro Hattori, also known for her Kanji de Manga series.
For chefs new to Japanese cuisine, The Manga Cookbook is a wonderful introduction to making basics. Fun and easy to follow, this little cookbook will be a big help in the kitchen.
