Kimura's Cookbook

  • Japanese food is more popular than ever, and although sushi and ramen might be the most famous, there is so much more to discover about this wonderful cuisine. This book has all you need to know to get started, right from the very basics, as featured in the cooking classes at Kimura's Kitchen. With stunning photographic steps and a fun but precise approach, Joe Kimura Downie is the author bringing authentic Japanese cuisine to home cooks worldwide.


    The ingredients. The stories. The know-how. This beginner’s guide to Japanese cooking teaches you how to cook more than 100 traditional and modern dishes, with visual techniques and step-by-step illustrated recipes that can be made with ease.

    • Learn to master popular dishes such as tenpura, sushi, ramen, and yakitori, as well as many more.
    • Understanding a culture’s approach to food is just as important as recipes, so here you’ll find the story behind each dish, as well as a history of Japanese cuisine and how to recognise and find the ingredients.

    Whether you are a complete novice, home cook, or just curious about the wonderful world of Japanese cuisine, this book will take you from zero to hero in simple steps.
