Japanese Home Cooking with Sozai is the best

Thank you for an informative, interesting and delicious insight to Japanese home cooking. I enjoyed your warm and engaging style of talking about the food, demonstrating the techniques and the explanation about the chemistry of flavours. You have encouraged me to try the recipes at home and incorporate into my own home cooking.
