Despite the long hours Ami spends at the busy Japanese artisan patisserie she runs with her husband, her day doesn't end when they lock up in the evening. Back home, she dons the domestic apron and prepares a full meal that the two of them can enjoy. These meals usually consist of a soup, a staple, three to four side dishes and a dessert, and it doesn't take long to put it all together. In this book, Ami reveals her secrets to whipping up scrumptious yet healthy dishes on a daily basis, and in double quick time. She shares more than 50 easy-to-follow recipes that can be scaled up or down, tips on preparing dishes ahead to save time, plus a guide on how to cut vegetables quickly and efficiently. Plan, cook and enjoy Japanese home-style dishes with Ami!
