  1. Humm I don’t know about competition: your japanese recipes I can’t find anywhere else, I would definitely get the book: All the Japanese cuisine books we get here are too designed and don’t touch the day to day Japanese cuisine. If you know of one please tell me, but I have never found the type of recipes you have on your blog you know…

    1. The truth that the recipes that I feature are easy ones to appeal to normal people like you and I, but which publisher would accept such material?
      Unless someone can introduce me to a publisher who would take the risk to publish a book for the masses…
      I’ll tell you what, if you can find such a publisher, I’ll be only too glad to take you as my personal agent with the profits shared!
