There aren’t many more flavorful, aromatic, and well-balanced dishes within the culinary world than traditional Japanese soups. They always manage to achieve a perfect blend of savory, salty, tangy, spicy, and umami that every comforting bowl of broth needs. And while recreating those combinations at home might seem like an impossible task, with a little help from Yamaki products, it’s going to become a lot more feasible.
Whether you’re planning on making the incomparable miso soup, classic noodle broth, or the most minimalistic yet impeccable clear broth soup, you’re going to need a dashi base. Dashi is a flavorful broth that you can build the rest of your Japanese soups on. It’s made by heating water containing kemp (a type of seaweed) and kezurikatsuo (shavings of katsuobushi, fermented tuna, or bonito) and letting everything simmer together to create the most enjoyable umami flavor. Cooking dashi from scratch is a time-consuming and laborious task, so to not overcomplicate everything for yourself, you should probably make sure that you’ve got a bottle or two of Yamaki’s dashi stock. It tastes as good as classic homemade versions and preserves a lot of effort. Use this Kappo Shirodashi broth to recreate traditional recipes or improvise and come up with something completely unique - the possibilities are endless!
