Home Cooking

I was in the Oriental Bazaar last week and I encountered an English-language recipe book on home cooking. In my limited encounters with Japanese home-cooking, mostly through my (Japanese) roommate, I’ve found it to be delicious and quite different from any of the food found in the restaurants of Japan, at least the restaurants where I spend most of my money. I feel like this whole range of cuisine is cutoff to gaijin who lack strong links to a Japanese family (homestay, etc.) or a Japanese S.O. – is this true? Anyone have recommendations for sources of “homestyle” Japanese food?

    I second that. I would like to try some Japanese home-cooking.

    Well, if you ever happen to be in Berkeley, CA, USA, there’s a place called Noriko no Ko that is all homestyle cooking.

    Other than that, I suspect you’re right about its general unavailability.
