Bring Japanese Navy food culture to your kitchen with this delightful cookbook featuring 46 recipes from the Meiji and Showa periods! It includes recipes for curry, Western style food, sweet jellied adzuki‐bean paste, and even ice cream!

When you hear "military meal" you may picture something simple, but the Japanese Navy was different, and served up various rich meals every day from Western cuisine to Japanese food, Chinese food, and original Western-style mixed menus and sweets. For this book, 46 recipes have been specially selected from the hundreds of possibilities available from the Meiji to Showa periods, and you can now enjoy them in the comfort of your own home!

Although the Navy's meals started out as mainly Western cuisine, the variations expanded due to various events, changes in the times, and changes in the circumstances surrounding the Navy. The book has been divided into three chapters "Meiji Period", "Taisho - Era Showa Era" and "Pacific War Period" to explain the changes and developments of naval cuisine by era and society. In addition, there is a commentary column on the navy and food, such as the size of ships and the influence of differences in facilities on cuisine.
