The Manga Cookbook
By The Manga University Culinary Institute. Illustrated by Chihiro Hattori. Recipes by Yoko Ishihara.
Food appears frequently in manga, but what exactly is it that the characters are eating? Introducing The Manga Cookbook, an illustrated step-by-step guide to preparing Japanese cuisine.
This is a cookbook simple enough that anyone, even a complete novice could learn to cook basic Japanese food minutes after picking up the book. Instead of using dense text and vague photos, everything is clearly drawn out in manga form by the masterful Chihiro Hattori (illustrator of the Kanji de Manga series).
