From the kitchens of the Manga University Culinary Institute comes the critically acclaimed "The Manga Cookbook," a fully illustrated step-by-step guide to making the same sorts of foods you see in your favorite manga and anime series — including popular bento (boxed lunch) recipes!
Food appears frequently in Japanese comics, but what exactly is it that the characters are eating? Featuring more than two dozen homestyle recipes, The Manga Cookbook shows you how make authentic onigiri (rice balls), yakitori (skewered chicken), oshinko (pickled vegetables), udon (Japanese noodles), okonomiyaki (Japanese-style pizza) and many others!
The Manga Cookbook also includes sections on creating attractive bento lunches and how to properly use chopsticks, and everything is cleverly illustrated by award-winning manga artist Chihiro Hattori.
