    I found this book by accident and absolutely loved it. Japanese food is a serious hobby of mine and with a substantial number of cookbooks I thought I was an expert in the subject. I learnt so much more from this comic book! I quickly ordered volume 2, am awaiting vol 3 (can't stop re-reading the first 2 while waiting) and will be buying all 7 volumes when they come out (all too infrequently) over the next 6 months. I've even tried recreating dishes from the books-with varying success...Like the movie Tampopo this book is recommended to anyone with an interest in Japanese food or culture. Don't be put off if manga or reading back to front aren't your thing, they're as good as any Japanese cookbook I've ever read.

    I am a huge fan of Japanese food, and have been making sushi rolls and miso soup on a weekly basis. I wanted to learn more about japanese cuisine, and ordered the first book of the series. I was not disappointed at all! Although in comic form, this manga really taught me a lot about Japanese essential ingredients and proper cooking methods. I ran straight to the Japanese store to stock up on konbu and bonito flakes after reading it!! The storyline is interesting, although the conflicts between father and son can get pretty repetitive. It's still an addictive read though - I've since ordered the Sushi volume for a friend, and another one on Vegetables for myself.
