Hello, I'm Joyce Shimokura, an Education Docent volunteer at the NNMCC. I enjoy trying new recipes and am recommending two cook books from Tonari Gumi.
My book recommendation:
The first, Home Away From Home, is full of delicious recipes and tips all accompanied by full page pictures and easy to follow instructions.
The second, Our Edible Roots, is a book educating the reader on the various vegetables used in Japanese cooking. Personal stories, historic information, gardening tips as well as recipes make this book more than a just a cookbook!
The bonus to having these two books in your collection is the fact that you will be supporting Tonari Gumi, a most worthwhile organization supporting the Seniors! Both books can be easily purchased in the Nikkei Museum gift store!
Happy reading and cooking everyone!
