Chefs worldwide admire the subtlety of their Japanese counterparts: with only a limited palette of condiments, cooks all over Japan create an enormous variety of flavors for their vegetables, fish, or meats. If you have experienced this broad spectrum of tastes and want to reproduce it at home, soy sauce maker Fundokin has put together the ultimate toolbox, aptly named the Fundokin Traditional Japanese Tastes Set. In just two bottles and a pack, you have all you need to create Japan's taste.
Two versions of Fundokin's top-grade soy sauces - one naturally matured in casks made from Nara's from Yoshino cryptomerias and one combining soy and katsuobushi bonito flakes - are the two bookends of the Fundokin Traditional Japanese Tastes Set. And in the middle, a one kilo (2.2 lbs) pack of miso, the salty fermented soybean paste necessary to create one of Japan's most trademark soups, miso-shiru (miso soup). The only thing you need to add is your imagination!
