Amazing Book on Japanese One-Pot Cooking

Amazing book on Japanese one pot cooking

Sue Hill

5 Stars

November 17, 2015

Focusing entirely on cooking using a Japanese clay cooking pot, Donabe is the ultimate authority on the subject.
Donabe has helped me learn how to make many of our favorite recipes myself. It is a truly authentic work on Japanese home-style “one pot” cooking. Donabe pots are a specially-made clay pot, used for one-pot cooking over an open flame (gas range included). The authors are by an American chef who has cooked professionally in Japan for years, and a native whose career revolves around popularizing donabi cookware around the world. Together, they’ve created what appears to be the definitive work on the subject. That said, however, many of the dishes include Japanese ingredients not readily available in our area.
Everything we have tried has been outstanding — authentic and delicious flavors, yet most are very easily prepared. One-pot cooking at its best.

The Key to a Taco is a fresh Tortilla

Sue Hill

4 Stars

October 27, 2015

This is a very thorough book just on Tacos. Salsas and toppings are included, but chef is correct in his demand that a great taco must have a freshly made tortilla. A fresh warm tortilla in corn or flour is an absolute. I can attest to this experience. He does give suggestions that are practical for the home cook to achieve the texture and grind for homemade corn tortillas. And the versatility of flour tortillas is not ignored. I especially appreciated the tips on tortilla warmers. Keeping them warm without getting soggy is critical. All the classic tacos are covered. As well as seafood and vegetable tacos. His story of discovering "cheeseburger tacos" in Mexico was great. I can hardly wait to try that recipe. I have a collection of Mexican cookbooks. The taco is such a basic. If you become an expert in this one food item, you can serve a Mexican feast that covers every flavor, texture, meat and salsa. But if you just learn to make a fresh tortilla with this book, then it is worth the investment for this skill alone. You will never buy a package of tortillas again.

Samantha has a wonderful writing style that keeps you enthralled, even in a cookbook.
The book is divided into various section of spice recipes with and a bit more. There is a section that explains about tips, ingredients and equipment which is very interested. What I love about the book is that there isn't a great reliance on sugar, the spices, chili, peppercorn, nutmeg, cardamom and a few others, are the heroes.

The recipes in this book are wonderful. Some of the ones that I thought looked really great are salt and pepper caramel brownies, summer berry focaccia, frozen eggnog pops, and my all time favorite gingerbread. I will say that I would not recommend these recipes to a beginning cook. They seemed a bit time consuming and difficult for a newbie. Someone who has been baking for a while though should have no problem with these fantastic recipes. I would highly recommend this cookbook
