Japanese seasoning „The big four“ of Japanese seasoning
Soy sauce, mirin, miso and dashi broth, are „The big four“ seasonings of Japanese traditional culinary recipes. Due to fermentation and maturation they carry a rich taste of umami. For the freshness and acidity in recipes we do recommend Kitomora Yuzu juice and Kaneichi Sansho pepper. Japanese seasonings are versatile and can be used in several dishes to bring the “Japanese” touch to it.
