Nisei Kitchen

From our ISSEI parents, the first generation of Japanese to live in America, we NISEI, the second generation, lovingly transmit the miracle of life and richness of heritage to our children, the SANSEI, or third generation.

This book has been compiled by members of the St. Louis chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League, a national organization whose motto is “for better Americans in a greater America.”  Special thanks are due JACL officer George Hasegawa who saw its need and supplied encouragement over the many years of its creation.

The Nisei Kitchen is a lovely cookbook with over 200 pages of easy to follow recipes for delicious dishes.  Includes recipes for traditional Japanese, Chinese, Hawaiian and Korean dishes.

Where can I buy one?
