history, usage, types, receips and even how to make miso. a little dated but excellent in all regards.


The only book of its subject

by TimH on Jun 7, 2007

To my knowledge this remains the only more-or-less thorough book on the subject [in English]. I personally bought the book for the miso-making techniques, which are presented clearly and easily accessible to the layman, rather than the recipes using miso. Originally published in the mid 70's, not all the recipes may be up to current taste trends. However if you're into fermented or traditional food preparation, you will likely enjoy this book. Again it is probably the only book that fully explains the miso-making process outside of Japan.
