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.
