I just did an article on this topic, so here's part of the scoop:
The complete citation is:**
Wang, Teresa and E.N. Anderson. “Ni Tsan and His 'Cloud Forest Hall
Collection of Rules for Drinking and Eating'.”/ Petits Propos

Press. 2005. Pp. 444-455.
This can be interlibrary loaned although the book is not that common.

available. Additional notes and updates may be found on Anderson’s

New York: Kegan Paul, 2001. 273 p. Surveys the origins of Japanese
diet and foodways and includes bibliographies. It’s not a cookbook with
