Recommend a cookbook
So next month I'm leaving the U.S to study abroad in Japan for a few months. I'm not sure if a lot of the items I use to cook are going to be as readily available (or as low cost) in Japan so I was hoping that someone could recommend a good vegetarian cookbook w/many Japanese recipes.
i would pick up a macrobiotic cookbook. i can't remember the name of any, but many feature a lot of foods that i purchase at my asian food market.
even going to an AFM (if you have one in town) can help you see what you might be able to find. mine has a LOT of vegan stuff!
I'm so envious. Japan is on my "must see" places to visit. I love all things Asian.
"The enlightened kitchen: fresh vegetable dishes from the temples of Japan" is a pretty good cookbook. It's not big , but it's good interesting food and nice pictures. http://www.amazon.com/Enlightened-Kitchen-Vegetable-Dishes-Temples/dp/4770024932
I also have "The Asian Vegan Kitchen" by Hema Parekh...which is a very good cookbook, again small, but good. Japan is pretty international, especially when it comes to pan-Asian food, so using this cookbook, or another pan-Asian book might be relatively easy...http://www.amazon.com/Asian-Vegan-Kitchen-Authentic-Appetizing/dp/477003069X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1248382910&sr=1-1
