    One thought on “Japanese Hot Pots: Family Style Comfort Foods”

    1. This book is what the cover promises: a collection of Japanese hot pot recipes. The ones I've tried were east to prepare, conveniently dirtied few dishes, and tasted fantastic. I also got to break out the dutch oven which made me happy (dutch ovens are recommended as second to the Japanese donabe, but the book states a regular stainless steel pot should also work). The photography is both beautiful and helpful in visualizing the end product.But while the food itself is easy to put together and f [...]

    2. It's a sad fact of life that "comfort food" doesn't always translate between cultures. After making the first recipe in this book, I found out my significant other dislikes anything made with dashi, the fish-and-kelp stock that forms the base for many traditional Japanese dishes (as well as a few other complaints). So, visions of quick and easy nabe nights were dashed for me. The book itself is a well-written and colorful introduction to down-home Japanese cooking. The type of cuisine is quite f [...]

    3. I don't usually add cookbooks to but I've practically read this one cover to cover and I've made one of the recipes (the tofu hot pot) so it seems fair game. It has beautiful, helpful photographs, and it breaks down all of the ingredients you will need and how to use them very clearly with photographs of each ingredient. The book is not just recipes, it talks about the cultural aspects: hotpot is a communal fun way of eating where you sometimes cook the food on a hotplate on the table, dip your [...]

    4. Beautifully photographed images of the ingredients and finished hot pots. I would definitely have to buy a donburi (Japanese clay cooking pot) before I could even begin to attempt making some of these dishes. I personally wouldn't make most of the recipes as they included innards or funky parts of chicken/pork/fish, but I liked the look of the vegetarian ones at least and some of the beef. Very interesting to learn about the history and details that go into making a Japanese Hot Pot and all the [...]

    5. Beautiful pictures, helpful descriptions of ingredients - the mushroom hot pot was so easy to make! Looking forward to trying more of the vegetarian (or mostly - I used tuna for the broth, but there are instructions for mushroom stock) dishes. I wish there was a good Asian grocery store closer, but it is a good excuse to make a trip to the International District.

    6. after moving away from home, my mom's japanese cooking was one of the things i missed the most. this cook book is pretty easy and my family enjoys the hot pots. i live in central michigan and asian markets are an hour or two away so i need to alternate some vegetables or exclude certain things but it still tastes great. you can't mess up.

    7. This book is awesome! I made the anything goes hot pot last night and it was a huge hit. I love the fact that there are large pictures of almost every recipe, and the ingredient break downs in the beginning of the book are really interesting. This is definitely going to be my winter staple.

    8. This cookbook made Japanese food seem less daunting. I always thought that making dashi was a complicated process, but this made it seem simple. Can't wait until the weather cools down to try some of these!

    9. Great recipes (I haven't had a chance to try but they look good).It has some lovely pictures, but the actual instructions on how to make each hot pot could have been written better instead of just paragraphs of text that are a bit on the small side.Good book overall.

    10. Concise information about ingredients and beautiful recipes. I look forward to making many of these meals.

    11. Nice modern cookbook. recipes and instructions. Looking forward to making many of these for Friday night "happy hour dinners", Wednesday-night Coleman lectures, etc. Economical and fast.

    12. This book was meh. I don't remember Why I wanted to read it, and put it on my holds list from the library but there were some good recipes.

    13. Beautifully photographs. Plentiful unique hot pot recipes if your typical soup base is chicken broth. Soymilk Hot Pot is interesting.

    14. I love this book! Ingrid teased me for sitting down and reading this book for an hour. I have made several of these soups, and they are fantastic! I want to make them ALL!
