9780615709765: The Japanese Pantry

We've all done it: bought a new and exotic ingredient for a specific recipe only to be left wondering what on earth to use it for afterwards. That expensive condiment sits forgotten in the refrigerator until it eventually expires. That odd-looking vegetable waits in the crisper and inevitably gets tossed in the trash. This unintentional waste can make us feel like it isn't worth it to try new foods if we're just doomed to throw half of it out anyway. We go back to buying the same comfortable ingredients and making the same comfortable foods because at least then we can be sure that we aren't throwing our money away.

The Japanese Pantry is unlike other cookbooks in that rather than merely listing a collection of recipes, the focus is on the ingredients themselves, and how they can be incorporated into your own style of cooking. I've selected 25 basic Japanese ingredients that can be found at most major supermarkets and sought to strip them down and demystify them - to show how they can be used in both familiar and new ways. My goal is to give you the confidence to try a new ingredient, being sure that it won't go to waste, but instead become a vital part of your own pantry.

About the Author:

Alayna Tucker began her journey into Japanese cooking as a young adult learning to cook for the first time. It all started with an uninspiring bowl of cheap instant ramen, which she would dress up with the addition of steamed vegetables, then shrimp or egg, eventually even replacing the seasoning packet with her own homemade stock. With a desire to recreate even more of these asian flavors at home, she sought to learn about the various ingredients prevalent in asian cooking, predominantly those used in Japanese cuisine. Now, over a decade later, these ingredients are still staples in her household and her own relaxed style of Japanese-inspired cooking has grown to become the style she feels most comfortable with. Alayna is a resident of Decatur, GA where she lives with her husband and two neurotic cats.
