The title of Kimiko Barber’s new book ‘Cook Japanese At Home’ says it all. As a Japanese-born food writer and cookery teacher, Kimiko has been encouraging people to cook for many years. Although Japanese food has gained worldwide popularity, it is still considered somewhat ‘difficult’ to cook at home. In this talk, Kimiko aims to dispel this fear and to reveal the diversity of Japanese home cooking.
