This is the first book in English by chef Murata dealing with easy-to-make home cooking recipes. The 60 recipes in the book include standard and popular Japanese dishes like Teriyaki, Tempura, Sushi, Miso soup and many others you can enjoy at home, plus several of his unique signature dishes that have helped him earn his reputation as the best chef in Japan. All of these recipes are characterised by being easy to create, and by their use of ingredients that are readily obtainable across Europe. The dishes are clearly described, and accompanied by the superb colour photographs of specialist Akira Saito.

Simple recipes are for those who are unfamiliar with oriental cooking. Either the liquid measurements have to be reduced or the amount of heat has to be increased for simmered dishes; the teriyaki dishes are yum!
