Hashi, A Japanese Cookery Course
Hashi is a book of Japanese food that replicates the famous cookery classes that Reiko runs from her south-west London home. Hashi takes the reader through the many mysteries - at least as conceived by the Western mind - of the basics of Japanese cooking. From there it steps up to favourites from the Japanese home kitchen, finishing with a selection of slightly more adventurous dishes that are sure to excite. Written with great style and precision, Reiko leads the reader gently through the various challenges that confront the Western eye when it comes to tackling the food of Japan.
