Abstract:

"American-born Sonoko Kondo spent many of her childhood years in Kamakure, Japan, in the home of her grandmother. It was there she learned the uniquely Japanese way of appreciating and preparing food that evolved into [this book]. From her grandmother, Sonoko learned to savor fresh foods in their season, to prepare them in ways that preserve their individual tastes and texture, and to present dishes that nourish all the senses. When she and her family returned to the United States to live, Sonoko Kondo applied the culinary theories Grandmother had taught her to the meals she prepared in her American kitchen. With her American friend, Lou Stoumen, she began to modify seasonings and portions and experimented with new foods and combinations of ingredients ... Each of the more than 200 recipes clearly describes all the techniques, equipment, and ingredients needed to create sophisticated specialties ... It contains advice on menu planning, a glossary of Japanese foods, and a listing of resources for hard-to-find ingredients."--Jacket.
