Top Comments Fran September 20, 2012 at 8:17 pm Fabulous review of a wonderful book. I feel as though I am getting to know Nancy, her family and her life so intimately now as I make my way through her book. I wish I could actually hold the book in my hands, but finding it in the iBooks store was a very happy surprise. I’ve been craving Asian food so much since moving here and like you say in your review — there are a number of “why didn’t I think of that” recipes, tips and tricks that help me through the No Asian Food zone I’m living in. Now, if I could just find a way to incorporate corn tortillas into one of her recipes. hahahaha! Rocky Mountain Woman September 21, 2012 at 1:22 pm I’ve been on the hunt for a book about Japanese food for a few months now. This looks perfect! Teri Tith September 21, 2012 at 1:39 pm When I follow the link to Amazon.com I get a Kindle reader option. What do I have to do to get it for my iPad reader? I don’t know. I have a Kindle reader on my iPad so I just buy Kindle books through Amazon and read them on my iPad that way. Perhaps you can get the book through Apple iTunes? ~Elise KarinGal September 21, 2012 at 9:30 pm Sad that Honolulu’s not on the list of tour locations. Do you realize how successful that book would be here?!? The demographic here is perfect for this book. Either way, can’t wait to get one for myself. Thanks for the heads-up on this cool book. Kim Akari September 22, 2012 at 11:03 am I agree! Honolulu would receive this book well. I have ordered my copy and am excited to read it! My mom is going in a trip to Japan in the spring and I am thinking this will make a perfect holiday gift to get excited about her trip. Jenny September 23, 2012 at 10:05 pm As a half-Japanese woman, I have never learned to cook any Japanese food, even though my Japanese mother used to own a Noodle restaurant in San Diego, CA. I also lived in Japan as a child. I was so excited to see your book because it looks like the type of foods that I remember eating as a child. One of my favorite memories was buying a charcoal cooked sweet potato from a vendor, carrying it for warmth in my pocket, and eating it enroute to school. I am excited and look forward to ordering your book this week! Beth Sullivan September 24, 2012 at 4:18 am I ordered this book shortly after you first mentioned it and it just arrived! It is indeed a beauty! Thank you for sharing it! Kumi September 25, 2012 at 11:04 pm Reading the column, I ordered this book. I can’t wait to receive it. By the way, I’m Japanese and love to cook! Becky October 6, 2012 at 3:02 pm One of my best friends in grad school was Japanese — and a former home ec teacher I might add — who threw the most amazing dinner parties. Because of her, I’ve grown to love Japanese food, but I’ve also been too intimidated to try the recipes out myself. I am glad to hear this book has a heavy-helping of easy-to-make recipes. I will check it out for sure! la fata della zucca October 14, 2012 at 1:44 pm Thank you for sharing this book: seems amazing, I’ll surely add this to my wish list for Xmas!
