Dictionary of Japanese Food PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dictionary of Japanese Food free pdf Nominated for the Glenfiddich Food Book of the Year Award, this timeless volume is the first and only book of its kind on the subject. "A Dictionary of Japanese Food" helps food lovers around the world decipher the intricacies and nuances of Japanese cooking and its ingredients. Definitions in ordinary cookbooks and standard dictionaries such as akebia for "akebi," sea cucumber for "namako," plum for "ume" can be inadequate, misleading, or just plain wrong. Richard Hoskings eliminates the mystery by ensuring that each entry in the Japanese-English section includes the Japanese term in Roman script- the term in kana or kanji or both- a Latin name where appropriate- an English definition- and, for most entries, a short annotation. The English-Japanese section defines important English food terms in Japanese and annotates those needing explanation. One hundred small line drawings make it easy for readers to identify everything from "mitsuba" to the "okoze fish," and seventeen appendices address the most critical elements of Japanese cuisine, from the making of "miso" and the structure of the Japanese meal to the tea ceremony. Newly typeset and featuring a fascinating and informative new foreword by Japanese cookbook author Debra Samuel, "A Dictionary of Japanese Food" will continue to help both food lovers and visitors to Japan discover the wonders of one of the world's great cuisines."
