Author Asako Yoshida is the owner and founder of Tokyo's renowned Asako Yoshida Cooking School, where the Japanese go when they want to learn how to cook their own national cuisine. Although they might have to wait a long time—since her immensely popular school has an extensive waiting list! Now, with publication for the first time in English, you too can learn how to prepare Japan's favorite dishes in your own home from one of Yoshida's top-selling cookbooks.
