Japanese Women Don’t Get Old or Fat: Secrets of My Mother’s Tokyo Kitchen

by Naomi Moriyama

I’m devouring this book. I think it’s a wonderful omage (or is that homage…I can’t remember) to a mother. I can’t agree with her thoughts about dairy milk. I think it’s horrible it could get into the Asian diet at all. It’s one of my favorite things about Asian food and dining is the safety of not having to worry about the dreaded cow milk. But, alas I really, really enjoy the helpful information about Japanese diet and love the story about her mother.

Would make a really nice Mother’s Day present especially if your mother wants to try Asian cooking.
