It's a mostly well-known fact that I've written forty books about the food and culture of different countries. The e-books began as articles for the website Food Fare, but were later turned into e-books that are available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kobo Books. The titles are now known as the Food Fare Culinary Collection.
Just prior to Thanksgiving this year, I decided to make one of the books freely available online in "article" format. Japanese Culture & Cuisine is now online for free, containing all the details and graphics that came with the book version.
Japanese Culture & Cuisine contains information about the food and culture of Japan, including a brief history, common food, mealtime and dining, sushi, rice variations, eating with chopsticks, table settings and etiquette, tea, sake, Japanese snacks, more than 40 authentic recipes, food terms, words and phrases, and resources for further study.
Japanese Culture & Cuisine was one of the first full-length essays I wrote about food and culture (after lengthy research and experimentation). It remains one of my favorites, just behind Medieval Cuisine.
