I’ve already written the (semi) complete history of these books. This edition was written by Rafael Steinberg.
I have used this cookbook from time to time as it includes what some think are traditional Japanese or Chinese recipes. Its a very nice cookbook where Island foods are concerned and definitely full of yummy things.
Each image links to a larger picture if you want to read or use the recipe.
Each spiral bound book measures 9 inches by 6 inches and is about 1/4 inch thick.
