The dining room of Japan's charismatic First Lady Miyuki Hatoyama has for decades resonated with the laughter of many happy hours of entertaining with her son and husband. Whether playing host to visiting dignitaries or family friends, Miyuki always welcomes guests with her characteristic geniality and wholesome, flavorful recipes.
Her approach to cooking mirrors her cheerful personality-she cooks casually yet lovingly, with no frills or fuss in her recipes. A former theater performer and television actress, the rigors of life in her current role have not hindered her home cooking one bit, and she continues to cook with equal zeal and love for her husband, who comes home late from work almost always hungry.
In "Home Cooking with Japan's First Lady," Miyuki presents over 40 recipes for all occasions that are both easy and fun to prepare. Ranging from quick meals that can be put together in a few minutes, family favorites, party foods made easy with a unique twist, to comfort dishes with a splash of modernity, all the recipes come with the Hatoyama seal of approval and are the culmination of years of experience.
This book makes an interesting addition to the kitchen of anybody who is looking for quick, easy, and fun recipes with that inimitable Hatoyama touch.© Japan Today
