A little personal information: I was born in Japan (though am not Japanese), Japanese delights hold a special place in my heart. Especially easy to make ones like in the book! Camembert Tempura, anyone? How about Fried Lotus Chips and Japanese Pickles. Or Beef Teriyaki, Miso-Glazed Salmon Skewers, Grilled Eggplant with Soy and Ginger.... is anyone else getting hungry?
