What are the two main ingredients in Japanese cuisine?

The two main ingredients in Japanese cuisine are kombu and bonito flakes.

Kombu is a Japanese type of seaweed that is grown on the ocean bottom. It is a tall seaweed with thick and broad leaves. In Japanese cuisine, seaweed is dried and used in many different dishes. Kombu is part of the foundation of Japanese cuisine. It is not dried seaweed that is eaten in the same way as sushi seaweed. It is not suitable for that.

Bonito flakes come from a fish called Bonito. It is a fish that is related to tuna. The fish is cleaned, filleted and smoked. The fish fillets are then dried at certain temperatures for several months. Eventually, it is cut into ultra-thin strips. Like kombu, it is the foundation of Japanese cuisine.

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

The Japanese cuisine in itself is very large with many local specialties and regional dishes. You can also find restaurants from the near surrounding countries such as China and Korea.

Europe is slowly making their entry into the Japanese market. You see several restaurants that make classic dishes from European cuisine.
Raw materials from Europe are also found on Japanese shelves in the supermarket.
