This blog is for American home cooks who would like to prepare Japanese dishes.  Every week we will present Japanese/Asian recipes and whenever possible suggest substitutions to ingredients that are not readily available here in the U.S.  

These are traditional recipes passed down from my mother and grandmother.  When one thinks of Japanese cuisine sushi and tempura are the first to come to mind.  Japanese cuisine is actually more diverse.  Enjoy and explore the new world Japanese cuisine has to offer!  召し上がれ!meshiagre
