About Namiko Hirasawa Chen
Namiko Chen was born and raised in Yokohama, Japan. She grew up in a household filled with family preparing delicious food and her late grandfather owned a couple of teppanyaki restaurants in Osaka. Since elementary school, she spent almost every evening in her mother's kitchen helping her prepare dinner.
Nami started cooking for herself when she came to California as a foreign student when she was 20 years old. When she got married and had two young kids of her own, she started a blog — Just One Cookbook — to record all these precious family recipes and to share them with her friends. Things quickly took off from there, and today, Just One Cookbook has evolved into the world's most visited Japanese recipe website in the world.
Nami lives in San Francisco with her Taiwanese-American husband, two children, and their puppy Miso.

This cookbook is a collection of the most popular recipes shared on my blog, Just One Cookbook, over the past three years. It includes classic Japanese recipes like chawanmushi, gyudon and kitsune udon, as well as modern favorites like California rolls and green tea ice cream. Enjoy!
I have wanted to publish a follow-up ebook since the first one was released in 2013. Somehow eight years went by before I was finally able to pour my heart into this second book.
This cookbook has 90+ essential Japanese recipes I selected out of the 1,000 recipes on Just One Cookbook. My family and friends love these recipes and I hope yours will too.
