Recipes from "Japanese Farm Food"

I got this for Christmas and have been looking through it. The recipes sound good and are pretty simple. Any one that you've tried and especially enjoyed? I think the author comes across as a little self-righteous, but who cares if the food's good, right? Thanks.

  1. I'm also really curious about this cookbook. Keep us updated if you try out any of the recipes!

    1. Just tried the Celery with Red Pepper and Soy Sauce tonight (I'm too lazy to get up and look at the exact name but this is close). I've been looking for different vegetable side dishes in an effort to eat more veggies and lose a little weight (who isnt?). We really enjoyed it even though I didn't have organic Shoyu (I did use a very good quality one though) or excellent quality rapeseed or sesame oil (I used sub-par quality sesame oil). If you like celery, it's a nice dish. If you think celery is slimy or bitter - you might not like it. We enjoyed the break from the normal broccoli and salad to accompany our pork chops.
