About the Cookbook:  My Japanese Table is designed for people who love Japanese food and want to be able to make it at home.  Filled with authentic recipes collected over more than four decades in Japan, My Japanese Table includes classics such as Yakitori, Jumbo Shrimp Tempura, and Udon Noodles with Everything, as well as some surprising, but delicious American twists on Japanese standards, such as Lobster Rolls with Wasabi Mayonnaise, Matcha Mochi Cupcakes and a Layered Tofu, Smoked Salmon and Avocado Appetizer.  Armed with Japanese ingredients now available in New England supermarkets and with the accessible recipes in My Japanese Table, American home cooks can make authentic Japanese home-style meals in their own kitchens.

Since 2000 she has been a regular contributor to the food and travel sections of The Boston Globe.  Debra has lived abroad for more than a decade in Japan, where she studied Indian, Korean, and Japanese cuisine.
