Japanese Cooking  
For lovers of Japanese food, vegetarian expert Miyoko Nishimoto Schinner's latest book, Japanese Cooking Contemporary & Traditional, showcases the essence of Japanese cuisine. Traditional dishes and regional specialties, along with everyday favorites of the 20th century Japanese housewife and the new "nouveau Japonaise" recipes, all display the delectable flavors and stunning presentation that Japanese food is famous for.

One of the world's most healthful cuisine's is made even healthier by utilizing tofu, seitan, and other vegetarian foods as substitutes for those meals usually prepared with meat, fish or fowl-with traditional tasting results. The Japanese diet, although not vegetarian, has a history of vegetarian cooking in Buddhist temples as well as an abundance of traditional vegetable- and legume-based dishes.

Soon you'll be serving with confidence dishes like:

  • Shimeji Gohan  Oyster Mushroom Pilaf Okonomiyaki  Savory Vegetable Pancakes Gyoza  Japanese Pot-stickers Karei Udon  Curry Udon Noodles

    Miyoko's extensive knowledge of Japan's culinary customs, along with her childhood memories and favorite foods, help make Japanese Contemporary & Traditional, a truly unique Japanese cookbook.
