About the Author:

Harumi Kurihara's cooking, lifestyle books and magazines have made the charismatic former housewife a phenomenon in her native Japan and she has sold more than 20 million copies worldwide. She currently has more than 60 shops and cafes in Japan that sell her homeware, cookware and clothing ranges. Her success is rooted in her effortless, down-to-earth and unpretentious approach to stylish living and eating, which follows a philosophy of elegance and simplicity.Harumi's own inspiration derives from her traditional upbringing in a big family in central Japan. Later, as a full-time housewife and mother, married to Reiji Kurihara, a former TV anchorman, she found her talent to create delicious, simple to prepare, fashionable meals, without great expense. This skill, combined with her eye for simple, beautiful and practical home decoration has made her the most celebrated lifestyle authority in Japan.

From Publishers Weekly:

Created expressly for Westerners, the latest stylish volume from Japanese cooking star Kurihara (Harumi's Japanese Home Cooking) shows Americans how they can incorporate Japanese styles, flavors and techniques into weekday meals. A sort of Japanese Rachel Ray, Kurihara offers 70 home-style recipes big on flavor and short on effort. Arranged by main ingredient or flavor (rice, miso, shellfish, potato, etc.), readers will be able to crank out fare such as Rice with Sea Bream, Ginger Pork or Tonkatsu (pork shoulder steaks that have been breaded, fried and served with cabbage and a sauce of the same name) in almost no time at all, provided they have a few sauces on hand. Japanese riffs on fried chicken and sliders with teriyaki sauce make pleasant surprises, but there are enough classics like yakitori, egg drop and miso soup (three variations), and ubiquitous Sweet Pickled Ginger to please traditionalists. Those with a soft spot for Japanese flavors and techniques, or traditional cooks looking to branch out will find this a welcome, sharply-produced introduction.
