What's Cooking on Okinawa presents the favorite, cook-when-company-comes recipes of the Americans stationed on Okinawa and of their Okinawan friends. Its more than two hundred and forty-five recipes contributed by more than a hundred husbands, husband-hunters, housewives and high school students undoubtedly will provide a lot of fun with foods as well as the funds desired.The dishes are as varied and as cosmopolitan as the people who present them, representing a felicitous combination of old- and new-world influences. Many provide the fragrant aroma of Italian, French and German cooking. Others, calling for the generous use of soy sauce, ginger root, sesame seed, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, seafood, pork and rice, show how far East the West has come.Good old American favorites like the hamburger, for which there are seven recipes, are not overlooked, nor should it be any surprise to find here recipes for the use of Hershey Bars, Milky Ways, Ritz and Graham Crackers, Corn Flakes, Rice Crispies, and Coca Cola.For the venturesome, there are recipes calling for the use of awamori, brandy, creme de cacao, gin, rum, sake, whisky, and wine. And for that extra flavor, see what can be done with basil, bayleaf, curry powder, garlic, ginger root, mace, marjoram, oregano, thyme, and turmeric.The book abounds in recipes for cakes and candies, pies, cookies, and desserts, but it also provides a goodly number of widely varied main dishes.In any case, and in every case, one can be sure that the recipes are both time- and guest-tested, and are just about as fool-proof as any recipe can be. Some are traditional, going back a hundred years or more, and all of them have the makings of truly congratulatory conversation pieces.A list of the contributors appears at the end of the book as well as a most extensive index showing from one to a dozen different ways of using every major ingredient that might happen to be your favorite food.
