About the Author

Native Californian Nancy Singleton Hachisu has lived with her Japanese farmer husband and three sons in their 80-year old traditional farmhouse for the last 27 years in rural Japan, where she served as the leader of a local Slow Food convivium for more than a decade. She moved from California to Japan in 1988, with the intention to stay for a year, learn Japanese, and return to the United States. Instead, she fell in love with a farmer, the culture, and the food, and has made the country her home. Nancy has taught cooking classes for nearly 20 years, and also runs a children's English immersion program that prepares home-cooked meals with local ingredients. TBS and Fuji TV are currently documenting Hachisu's preserving and farm food life in rural Saitama as wll as her visits to artisanal producers in more remote areas of Japan. Her second book, Preserving the Japanese Way, is nominated for the 2016 James Beard Award in the International Cookbook category.

Reviews

"Essays on the author's years in Japan and lush photos make the book as great a pleasure to peruse as it is to cook from." (Karen Shimizu, Saveur) "With simple, nourishing dishes and richly detailed stories of Japanese farm life, Nancy Sington Hachisu creates a whole world between the fabric-bound covers of this book. Once you step inside, it's very tempting to stay." (Emma Christensen, The Kitchn) "In her sumptuous exploration of Japanese dishes, Nancy Singleton Hachisu expertly blends all of these, creating a memorable collection that will appeal not just to cooks but to anyone who appreciates a simple, lovingly prepared meal." (Elizabeth Millard, Foreword Reviews) "The book offers a breadth of information, with lessons about Japanese products and techniques, and instructions for everything from homemade tofu to udon noodles. But for me, the recipes for simple vegetable dishes, often flavored with only a bit of miso or a splash of sake, are the most fascinating" (David Tanis, New York Times) "This book is both an intimate portrait of Nancy's life on the farm, and an important work that shows the universality of an authentic food culture." (Alice Waters)
