Three friends walk you through their best Japanese recipes - in expressive, humorous illustrations!

Cooking should be fun, and this highly entertaining Japanese cookbook for beginners is packed full of humor and whimsical illustrations. Japanese Cooking with Manga started out as Gourmand Gohan, a hand-drawn and hand-bound edition that the three co-authors circulated among their friends in Barcelona. Each author has a unique take on Japanese food preparation-but they are all equally passionate about food and how it brings people together.

Simple, step-by-step Japanese food recipes are accompanied by hand-drawn illustrations and commentary on each page, making this manga cookbook read more like a graphic novel than your average collection of recipes. Information about Japanese culture and traditional Japanese cuisine are presented in a charming and accessible way, making learning a new style of cooking as educational as it is entertaining. The colorful manga art and comic-style stories within this illustrated cookbook will appeal to the serious foodie and experimental chef alike.

Alexis Aldeguer was born in Elx (Valencia, Spain) and is currently living in la Vila de Gracia (a neighborhood in Barcelona). He is an illustrator and former supermarket shelf-filler, a comic book fanatic and an apprentice in the art of making Paella. He is also a regular consumer of war documentaries and loves arguing for entertainment purposes. Maiko San is a neighbor from Penguin Village, a master chef and a spiritual guide, as well as a connoisseur of each and every Asian restaurant in Barcelona. She gives away both wisdom and love by cooking for her friends. Ilaria Mauro arrived in town from the green countryside of Brianza, in Lombardy. She came to Spain to get a tan and never left. She is a photographer, designer and a little bit of many more things. She collects patatas bravas and cozy spots where she likes to go to eat and chill out.

This Japanese cookbook is heavily illustrated in a Manga style and began as a hand-drawn, hand-bound edition circulated among the three coauthors' friends. -Publishers Weekly The manga frame surrounds each recipe with a conversation and reminds readers that cooking and sharing healthy, home-cooked food is a fun and social activity. Substitute ingredients are suggested for those without access to specialty grocery items, and the inclusion of dishes with an Italian flavor profile make this a warm and approachable introduction to Japanese cooking and the culture that surrounds it. -Booklist
