Welcome to our February 2012 Cookbook of the Month, Japanese Month which will feature WASHOKU by Elizabeth Andoh and JAPANESE COOKING: A SIMPLE ART by Shizuo Tsuji. If you’ve been lurking, please join us, we’re a welcoming bunch. If you're new to Cookbook of the Month, the COTM archive thread explains how it all works: http://www.chow.com/cookbook_of_the_m...
This thread will be used for general discussion, menu planning, linking to recipes from the books available elsewhere on the web, and for discussing the sections of the books covering general techniques, ingredients, sources, etc. If you’re interested in reading the nomination thread you’ll find it at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/827937 . Also of interest is the announcement thread at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/829118 and finally there is a useful pantry list posted by BigSal at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/8279... .
I’d like to send out a big thank you to LNightshade for taking over next month, and to Caitlin for all her help over the last 6 months.
The threads linked below will be used to discuss recipes in the chapters listed directly below each link. Please note the page number of the recipes as you review them. I’ve decided to put separate links for each book because they seem fairly differently organized.
