Believe it or not, an Amazon.com keyword search for "Osaka Recipes", "Osaka Cookbooks", and "Osaka Food" yielded ZERO results. So apparently a cookbook has yet to be written on the regional cuisine of Kansai and Osaka. Hmmm...

So, until someone writes one, the next best thing for a Kansai cookbook is probably going to be a good general Japanese cookbook that features a few regional recipes. Which means that the best resource for Osaka-style recipes is going to be the Internet.
