All About Just One Cookbook
I learned cooking from my mom at a young age. She cooked for us every night and I still get very excited when I visit my home in Japan because I can eat her delicious meals. The name Just One Cookbook came from my passion to make "just one cookbook" for all my family recipes, so I can save all the recipes my family enjoys in one place and then one day pass them on to my children.
