|cookbook on my must buy list

I'm quite excited about the upcoming release of Kansha: Celebrating Japan's Vegan and Vegetarian Traditions by Elizabeth Andoh. She wrote the excellent Washoku: Recipes from the Japanese Home Kitchen. I'm interested in eating vegetarian food at home. It's perfect! I hope it's as good (or better!) than Washoku.
She's launched two "on-line culinary classrooms," KANSHAcooking and WASHOKUcooking. According to the sites, she'll post recipes from the books with tips not in the book at somewhat regular intervals. She already has PDFs of several recipes. I downloaded the one for Dark Miso Soup with Sweet Potato (Satsuma imo no aka dashi), and found explanations about soaking the satsuma imo before using with pictures of several brands of the stuff you're supposed to soak them with (along with other good info). I love this kind of detail, personally.
