HARUMI KURIHARA is the most influential cookery writer in her home country of Japan. She has authored more than 40 books collectively selling more than 15 million copies, as well as producing a quarterly magazine Suteki Recipes (Lovely Recipes) and her own brand of kitchenware. Harumi's first cookbook in English Harumi's Japanese Cooking won the Gourmand World Cookbook award in 2004. Her success is rooted in her down to earth, pragmatic approach which follows a philosophy of elegance and simplicity.
In the cookbook, Harumi's Japanese Home Cooking, Harumi presents 70+ authentic Japanese recipes that are not too difficult to prepare. Included are chapters for desserts, drinks, eggs and tofu, fish, lunch boxes (bento), meats, menu planning, rice and noodles, soups, and vegetables.
What I like the most about this cookbook is that Harumi offers tips, helpful suggestions, and alternative Western ingredients in place of hard-to-find special Japanese items.
A glossary of ingredients is also included at the end of the book.
Her recipes are dope, precise and reliable. I'm adicted (shhh i also have her other two books-- everyday harumi and harumi's japanese cooking)
The best part for me? Udon, those thick, chewy noodles. I love the stuff, but we can only get it after a 2 hour drive, and it's expensive here in the US. My wife believed that it takes special flour to make, which we can't get, so even though we could eat it pretty much 365 days a year, we only had it occasionally. But Kurihara has a recipe that mixes AP and Bread flour that works! It requires some bad-ass kneading (like stomping on it for 20 minutes--literally) and it isn't quick (it is cheap, though), but they taste great. Even my wife gave it the thumbs up, which says a lot.
