HOME AWAY FROM HOME - THE VANCOUVER TONARIGUMI COOKBOOK

FORWARD

It is with sincere gratitude to the generosity of our sponsors and contributors that we, at the Japanese Community Volunteers Association (Tonari Gumi) here in Vancouver, have been able to come together for the creation of this cookbook.

Tonari Gumi has always been a place where many people from all walks of life have gathered. It was only fitting that we had this wonderful opportunity for seniors and volunteers to gather together and enjoy testing recipes. We are very grateful to everyone who shared their favourite recipes, some in memory of friends who have passed on. Many recipes are from the local Japanese-Canadian community that have been either lost of forgotten. This was a great opportunity for the seniors to revive and pass them on to a new generation of cooks. We have tried our best to use recipes that are simple and nutritious.

If you have any questions or you need help please do not hesitate to contact us. We do hope this book will be enjoyed by all!
