Submit Your Recipe: Ishikawa AJET Cookbook

Ishikawa AJET has decided to create a cookbook!  The aim is to create an English cookbook full of (mostly) healthy recipes that you can easily make in Japan using Japanese ingredients and Japanese kitchen equiptment.

Got a recipe?


– You need to have successfully made this recipe in Japan.

– Recipes must use METRICS.  Here’s a link to a great online recipe converter.

– Simple recipes are great (ex. making miso from miso paste, making curry from curry roux) because it’s hard to find English instructions for these things.

– Please submit fairly healthy recipes.

– Please submit recipes for speacialized diets, too! (meat-free, gluten-free, lactose-free, vegan, etc.)

– Ingredients should be available to all people in Japan (even those in the remote Noto!).  If you ordered an item from a particular website, please note it!

– If you can provide extra notes, please do.  For example, if you know the Japanese word for an ingredient, please include it!

– The book will be in English, but if you have a recipe in Japanese and don’t wish to translate, some friendly translators have offered to do that for you.

Submit your recipes via email to: leah [DOT] zoller [AT] gmail [DOT] com.    I know she’ll appreciate it!

Deadline for submissions: March 31st, 2010.

Want to help out another way?

– Volunteer to be a taste-tester!  They need volunteers to try out making these recipes in their own home to be sure they’re user-friendly.

– Help out with other aspects (graphic designing, editing assistance, creating an index, etc.)
