    Watching anime and reading manga sure can make a person hungry! Food appears frequently in Japanese cartoons and comics, but what exactly is it that the characters are eating?

    The Manga Cookbook is an award-winning step-by-step guide to preparing simple Japanese dishes using ingredients found in every Western kitchen. Learn to identify and make the same things you see in all your favorite manga: authentic onigiri (rice balls), yakitori (skewered chicken), oshinko (pickled vegetables), udon (Japanese noodles), okonomiyaki (Japanese-style pizza) and many others! Includes sections on how to assemble bento box lunches and properly use chopsticks.

    Featuring recipes by chef and registered nutritionist Yoko Ishihara and original illustrations by Chihiro Hattori, The Manga Cookbook has been praised by Gourmet Magazine and The San Francisco Chronicle, while the American Library Association's Young Adult Service's division named the book to its Top 10 "Popular Paperbacks" list for 2011.

    "When I first spotted the Manga Cookbook I just loved the concept. It was the perfect combination of my 2 new found hobbies, cooking and reading comics," writes Esther Keller in School Library Journal.
