This beautifully illustrated collection of fifty-three recipes represents the best of Japanese home cooking, ranging from soups and main dishes to snacks and desserts. You'll find mouth-watering Chicken-and-Egg Donburi, delicious Yellowtail Teriyaki, and simple yet satisfying Salmon Tea Rice. Dishes Westerners have come to love include that simmering cauldron of beef, tofu, and vegetables known as sukiyaki; grilled chicken kebabs (yakitori); and crispy vegetable tempura.

Sure to appeal to America's renewed interest in the virtues of plain home cooking, Japanese Family-Style Recipes presents wholesome, tasty dishes that are not only low in calories but easily prepared by the busy cook in the average kitchen. Gone are the elaborate, time-consuming food preparation and arrangement methods typically associated with Japanese cooking. Written in a clear and practical style, each recipe is accompanied by a tantalizing color photo of the completed dish. Hints for ingredient substitutions are provided, and as a special bonus to the health-conscious cook, a recipe table providing a nutritional analysis per serving.
