What is the purpose of wasabi?

Most people have experienced wasabi when they eat sushi.
There are many in Europe who uses wasabi to give their sushi a little extra flavor. It often happens that guests mix wasabi with soy sauce and then dip a piece of sushi into the mixture.

Japanese sushi chefs use wasabi in another way.
In Japan, the guests do not have the opportunity to taste their sushi with wasabi. The only guests get handed when they sit at the table are pickled ginger and soy sauce.

In Japan, wasabi is not used for all sushi there are some seafood that tastes better without wasabi. The Japanese sushi chefs use wasabi to highlight flavors in the particular piece of sushi. It may vary depending on what other taste is involved in the preparation of that piece of sushi.

What is Japanese chef’s view of fish?


Japanese chefs have a different view of fish.

In Japan, Japanese chefs use only raw materials that are in season.

A Japanese fish named Katsuo which is in the family with the tuna is in season 2 times a year. In spring it swims from southern Japan to the north. In spring, it is low in fat whereas in autumn when caught in northern Japan it is fat. On its swim from south to north it has eaten many small fish.

As a restaurant guest you can only find it on the menu card for a few months a year.
This is something that restaurant guests enjoy since the menu of Japanese restaurants in Tokyo changes very often.

Enjoy Christmas time with a healthy and tasty ramen soup, as it is made in Tokyo


December equals food and coziness on several levels for me.

Drink mulled wine and eat apple slices. Eat wonderful dinners at the city’s restaurants and not least Christmas lunch. Of course I also have to snack a bit like Christmas cookies and Christmas candy.

In order for the whole thing to not go overboard I have also put in a few days with a little healthier food. I do this by eating ramen or udon soup as it is served in Tokyo.

It fits in perfectly with the busy Christmas days, as it does not take much time to make when the fish stock is made. It’s a great taste, it is bursting with vitamins and minerals while detoxifying the body.

I’m probably not the only one who feels this way, which is why I have planned a noodle soup course just before Christmas before it starts. You can read more about the class Noodle soup for beginners

What is the first thing Japanese people notice when they eat sushi?


When a Japanese person orders sushi, they use other criteria to evaluate the food.

When it comes to sushi the Japanese’s favorite food is nigiri. The selection of fish in Japan is very large and it is very normal that you find 15 to 20 different fish on the menu.

What a Japanese person primarily looks for when eating sushi is whether the rice is cooked to perfection. The consistency of sushi rice should be soft but also firm. It should not be like porridge, but the rice grain should not be hard or raw inside either. It is a balance that is difficult to get.

If the rice is not cooked to perfection, I will affect the dining experience.  This is because quite a few ingredients are used for sushi. You use the best fish in the world, but if the rice is cooked to perfection the dining experience will fall apart.

In the Sushi course for beginners, you learn step-by-step how to cook sushi in a quality that is suitable for use in sushi.

Fish for sushi must be of the best quality and why?

There are many people who do not fully realize that there is a difference in the quality of fish. For sushi, only the best quality fish should be used and there is a reason for that.

Sushi is a nice and delicate dish and you must have knowledge on how to use very high quality fish so you can turn a simple looking piece of nigiri to a gastronomic experience.

The quality of the fish is also assessed on the basis of when the fish is caught. The fish must be as fresh as possible and it should preferably only be a few hours old. Then the bacterium in the fish has not begun to develop.
