For many, kaiseki ryori (kaiseki cooking) is the pinnacle of traditional Japanese cusine: it is a multi-course dinner that places a particular emphasis on the seasonality and appearance of the dishes according to very specific rules about how each dish is cooked and presented. Of course miso soup (served at the end instead of the beginning as in regular Japanese cuisine) plays an important part in it and the Kyo-kaiseki Instant Miso Soup set is a great way to explore some of its many varieties usually found only in luxury kaiseki dinners.
Each box of the Kyo-kaiseki Instant Miso Soup contains portions of eight different flavors as freeze-dried delicious, top-quality miso soup: tofu, vegetables, Welsh onions, eggplant, mushrooms, egg, pork, and red dashi broth tofu. What changes is the quantity: the 16-portion set has two of each, the 24-portion, three of each; while the 40-portion set, five of each. You just add some hot water and treat yourself (or your friends) to the subtleties of one of Japan's staple foods in its highest form.
