Japanese Larder by Luiz Hara

Japanese Larder by Luiz Hara

Review by Laura Richardson

The Japanese Larder goes beyond being simply a recipe book and rather is an informative introduction to a wide and varied range of those Japanese ingredients. It helps to expel the myth that Japanese food is complicated to make and brings a range of new and exciting dishes to your dining table.

Review by Trevor Skingle

In this very handy sized and concise book of just over one-hundred pages Professor Michael Wert attempts to explain in easy to understand terms the origins and development of the samurai, that most archetypal of Japanese warriors.

Sweet Bean Paste by Durian Sukegawa

Sweet Bean Paste by Durian Sukegawa

Review by Chris Arning

Durian Sukegawa’s Sweet Bean Paste is a tender story chronicling the unlikely bond between an ex con and an elderly lady with a shadowy past. The novel starts in a comical vein like a classic ‘odd couple’ narrative but turns into something else.
