A Cook's Journey to Japan: Fish Tales and Rice Paddies, 100 Home-Style Recipes from Japanese Kitchens

by Sarah Marx Feldner

Tuttle Publishing, $28

This inviting book is the warmest introduction to Japanese cuisine you could hope to find. Sarah Marx Feldner worked in Japan as an English teacher, but it was the country’s food (everyday home-cooked fare, in particular) that captured her attention. Here, she shares her discoveries through charming stories and 100 appealing recipes, such as Crispy Rice Snacks, Soy-Glazed Chicken Wings, Braised Spare Ribs, and Cold Sesame Noodle Salad. Each hunger-inducing recipe is thoughtfully written and most are tantalizingly photographed. And nothing seems too foreign or difficult, which was Feldner’s goal. She hoped readers would say, “I can make that!” And you will.
