Although it's not a knitting or fiber-related book, I wanted to share this book review with you. A typical Japanese meal at home features steamed rice ("sticky rice") at nearly every meal, including breakfast. After reading these wonderful books and cookbooks, I'm so glad I paid attention and asked my mom questions while she was cooking.
She also tried to describe to me the taste of a fresh vegetable or fruit, for instance -- how RIGHT it was when it was fresh and how WRONG it could be if it wasn't fresh, or in season. Oh, how nice it would be to expect deliciousness from what we eat, instead of mere edibility! Isn't the title a joke from that book "French Women Don't Get Fat?" That is what I thought of and it made me giggle then. My favorite when we were growing up was the raw egg mixed with fresh hot gohan (steamed white rice and had to be the right temp.) or a fried egg on top of warm steamed rice with japanese seasoning and seaweed! Though I'm a sugar-and-butter-on-my-rice-raised-girl, I have to say that I'm still grateful at least twice a week that you introduced me to the rice cooker!
And I agree with the above commenter that the title is probably a joke on the French Women Don't Get Fat book, which was a pretty awful book, I thought. I admit I still have to "get used" to "sticky rice" but when you have the right things to go with it, it certainly is delicious.
But so many other cultures make good rice (totally unJapanese of course)-- Persian pilaf and more! This site receives payments for advertising, and may receive commissions when you buy products through our links.
IKEA cabinets are better quality than most others in their price range, but you’re not going to be getting hardwood drawers with dovetail joints.
One good way to check the quality is to go to IKEA and look carefully at the demonstration kitchens in the showroom. Finally, try posting a request on one of several forums and get feedback from people who actually own IKEA kitchens. Installation can be done for free by you (or a handy family member or friend), or for money by an IKEA-approved installer or by someone local you hire to do it for you.
If you are going to hire someone, an IKEA-approved installer may cost you less even if the per-hour rate is higher than the local handyman, as IKEA cabinets are slightly non-standard in their installation methods and the experienced installer will be quicker to do the job. There are two different jobs involved in installing your IKEA cabinets: assembling the cabinets, and then installing them. If you can use simple tools and follow instructions, you can assemble the cabinets yourself.
Installation of the cabinets is not rocket science, but it requires attention to detail, planning ahead, and ideally some help.
As an example, in the 2008 Canadian catalog a 1 door, 1 drawer 15″ wide base cabinet costs $103 for the cheapest door type (Arlig white) but only $40 for the frame only. As an example, consider the backsplashes shown in several catalog and IKEA home page pictures (such as the backsplash shown on the cover of the 2008 kitchen catalog and inside on page 10.) These seem to be made with fabric or wallpaper (sometimes IKEA, sometimes not) behind a clear cover.
Get glass cut to size at a local glass store, with the edges rounded for safety, mount the paper or fabric on the wall, and mount the glass over the top. Get plastic panels cut, or buy plastic panels and cut them to size yourself, mount the paper or fabric on the wall, and mount the plastic over the top. Get hold of windows or sliding glass cupboard doors (new or recycled) of an appropriate size and make your backsplash to fit them, then mount them over the wallpaper or fabric.

Use multiple sliding glass doors and mount the paper or fabric to the back of the doors, so you can move the doors around and have different backsplash arrangements as your mood changes, or change the paper or fabric out completely. There’s no need to restrict yourself to IKEA products when trying to recreate a look.
This is an ebook so you can download it and view it right away on your computer screen, no waiting for it to arrive in the mail.
If you bought your cabinets at an IKEA store, you can go back to the store with your receipt and get a replacement for the missing part.
If you ordered at a store and your cabinets were delivered, you still need to contact the store where you ordered the cabinets. If you want your island to match the rest of your cabinets, you can buy several regular cabinets and attach them together. You may need to go for a custom countertop on top of your cabinets if you need it deeper than the standard 25″. First, you can do it the old-fashioned way, by hand, using IKEA’s own paper planner (built into the back of the 2008 kitchen catalog, but also available separately in stores). If you have money to spend there are a variety of kitchen planning software packages which allow to use any kind of cabinets, not just IKEA’s, but are a bit more complex to use. IKEA keeps discontinued door styles available for 2 years after they have been discontinued as part of the after sales service.
For plenty of information on modifying and hacking all things IKEA, check the IKEA Hacker link in the links list. IKEA itself provides two corner base cabinets in the main Akurum range, which come with lazy susans as part of the package. The freestanding ranges, Varde and Bravad, each contain a corner base cabinet which fits diagonally across the corner and contains shelves or drawers. Another possibility for a blind corner cabinet is a fold-out shelf fitting from Lee valley Tools: one half of this fitting attaches to the corner cabinet door and when you open the door, folds out with it, bringing along behind it another set of shelves which occupy the blind corner space. PDF document with details of the guarantee on IKEA kitchen components, construction standards, care instructions and testing. Forums and information archives on everything IKEA, including plenty of kitchen information.
A general kitchen design and renovation forum, frequently includes IKEA kitchen discussions.
IKEA cabinets are versatile, tough, and good value, and they can be used in many kitchen floor plans.
You will learn handy food preparation and  kitchen cooking tips, cleaning, organizational tips and much more. The title of the book was a bit off-putting to me; it's the subtitle that caught my eye, so that's what I'm using for this blog entry's title. When I was a guest in my Aunt Kazuko's home many years ago, she fixed a traditional Japanese breakfast for me every morning -- I was served miso soup, rice, pickled vegetables, green tea and a salad.
I've never violated a bowl of Japanese steamed rice (gohan) in that way and probably never will, so I'm sure to them that my eating rice and seaweed (nori) sounded odd. Although she no longer cooks, she loves a well-prepared Japanese dish and can instantly detect when something is wrong or unbalanced. It wasn't enough to just like a vegetable or fruit but to have the expectation of how it SHOULD taste. It's positively thrilling to make a dish that my "taste memory" remembers from the days of my own childhood! Not only can you check the actual materials used, but you can see how they hold up to abuse from the thousands of visitors who go through opening and closing the drawers, banging the doors, swinging on them and otherwise treating them far worse than you would your kitchen at home! You may be able to save time and money with a compromise solution where you assemble the cabinets yourself and then have an installer actually install them for you. You can also expect that you’ll get better at it as you go along, so start with a nice simple wall cabinet and work up to things like pull-out pantries! Again, if you are a reasonably experienced handy-person you can do it, but it may take longer than you expect.

IKEA customer service states that kitchen parts are sold individually, therefore you will be able to purchase the doors and drawer fronts separately. You’d need to add Rationell drawer(s) and shelves, or other interior fittings such as pull-out racks or shelves. Sometimes they are made from customized stock items, sometimes completely non-IKEA, but there’s usually a way to re-create them.
Often you may have to make compromises based on the money, skill or materials you have available, but you may come up with a solution that you like even better than the original catalog picture! Designing, ordering, assembling and installing a whole kitchen full is do-able but there are many more opportunities to make mistakes. Calling ahead to see if they have the part you need is a good idea, especially if you have far to go to visit the store. Call them and describe exactly what’s missing (you should be able to get exact part numbers off the instructions).
Take a look at the free-standing kitchen units such as Varde, Bravad or Udden, the Utby island shelf unit, or even the various sizes of kitchen cart. You can use base or wall cabinets to create an island of a specific size, and there are also 12″ deep base cabinets if you need a shallow depth but you want drawers. This involves measuring your space, drawing it out on the supplied squared paper, and using supplied cardbaord pop-outs of cabinets and appliances to lay out alternative plans.
The most direct option for planning a specifically IKEA kitchen if you have a PC is IKEA’s own Kitchen Planning software, downloadable from the IKEA website (see the links list). Easiest to modify is a plain cabinet with shelves, as drawers are more difficult to modify. This solution wastes no space at all and is very convenient if you can fit it into your plans.
This allows you to access all the corner space without wasting as much of it as a lazy susan does. One limitation if you have very tight clearances in your plan is that the range of widths available is not as fine-grained as some more expensive cabinet ranges, so you might have to use filler strips more often. Even though several options were offered and presented, I chose to eat a Japanese breakfast every day. Now that I'm older and I know better, I can embrace the way I enjoy something and not try to convince anybody else otherwise. My sisters and I used to think she was a bit of a diva, but after reading these books, I realize that she was expecting umami ("deliciousness") -- her palate was prepared for that -- and instead, she was disappointed because things didn't taste the way she was expecting. Believe me, she wasn't that spiritual about it back then, but looking back now, I realize that it's really difficult to describe to a child whether something tastes the way it should.
I've added a bit of sesame oil for the kids, my oldest drowns his rice in soy sauce - but they are growing up with rice as a staple in their diet too! Just installing and adjusting doors and drawer fronts on 20 cabinets once you have them fixed in place is a long project.
Of course, you can also make your own shelves or buy interior fittings elsewhere as long as the size is correct. You’ll also need to watch out for changes in door sizes as, depending on the style of the door, this may end up looking very odd!
Ask any Japanese daughter or son what their mother fixed them for breakfast and it was probably similar. For another thorough treatment of authentic Japanese cooking, please read Harumi's Japanese Cooking and Harumi's Japanese Homestyle Cooking (although the links take you to Amazon, I've been purchasing most of my books through Powell's). There are LOTS of pictures, but you get words too, unlike the basic IKEA instructions that come with your cabinets. Most people don't realize that homestyle Japanese food doesn't involve raw fish, sushi rolls or a hibachi grill (restaurant food) -- or even "fish heads" as some disparaging remarks have suggested.
