If you buy just one, I am going to second the vote for Washoku by Andoh.

I cook and eat all manner of stuff and I almost exclusively get my recipes online...for free! :)

Oh, I was reminded that Jenni (my fiancé) has blogged two of our vegetarian Japanese meals back in 2011, adapted from recipes in Harumi's cookbooks. It should shed some light on the content. I guess they are modern Japanese recipes (since there are some cross-cultural elements going on), but in my non-expert opinion they still feel distinctly Japanese in their approach and execution.

The blog has two other vegetarian recipes that I quite enjoy. I hope she gets back into blogging even though it's tricky to reach out, the posts make me happy at least :D

Finally got around to buying a cookbook, and this is the one I chose. Today I made the duck / soba-noodle soup, which was delicious. =)

The only problem was that the soup was practically worth its weight in gold! Bonito flakes are $7.50 for 30g at my local supermarket! I wonder if there's a cheaper online source?
