Good Japanese Cookbook for a Relative Beginner?

vonshu | Mar 17, 2013 12:23 AM

Hi all, looking for a cookbook as a gift to my girlfriend. She likes Japanese (and Asian in general) food a lot and has been cooking it a good amount herself. While she certainly cooks a good bit, I would still consider her a relative beginner and so wouldn't want to get a cookbook that is too complex that it is discouraging. Any recommendations? It could be a Japanese cookbook or a more general Asian cookbook that features Japanese cuisine. I was thinking maybe WASHOKU by Elizabeth Andoh or JAPANESE COOKING: A SIMPLE ART by Shizuo Tsuji because they were COTM and had good Amazon reviews. However, I don't really know much about them besides that.
