Japanese Cooking

Susan Fuller Slack, Author HP Books $9.95 (176p) ISBN 978-0-89586-327-0
Japanese Cooking explores a subject that, while trendy, is more the arena of the aficionado than of the amateur. Slack lived in Japan for four years and brings an expert's eye to the more than 150 recipes listed here. They include New Year's soup with grilled rice cakes, sukiyaki beef rolls, turnip-rose sunomono, scallop blossoms with raspberry-sesame sauce, and a wide variety of appetizers, soups, charcoal- and pan-grilled, deep-fried and one-pot dishes and even sushi and sashimi. Besides detailed essays on Japanese eating customs and the tea ceremony, there are useful notes on and photos of cutting and cooking techniques, a glossary of Japanese ingredients and an appendix of mail-order sourcesthe last especially helpful since most recipes require some ingredient not likely to be found in the typical American pantry.
