It has been said that Japanese cuisine has only four condiments (soy sauce, sake, vinegar, and sweet wine mirin) but the truth is that there are many more ingredients that can give flavor to Japanese dishes. No matter how many you list, though, if you were to only choose one, it would be soy sauce. It gives Japanese cuisine its salty flavor but also its umami, the fifth kind of taste and one of Japan's key contributions to gastronomy. Like all condiments, there is more than one type of soy sauce on the Japanese market and the Kikkoman Three Soy Sauces Set give you the opportunity to try three of the best.
Uniting eight smaller soy sauce producers, some of them going back to the 17th century, Kikkoman is Japan's biggest producer of the condiment. The Kikkoman Three Soy Sauces Set brings together a trio of 300 ml (10.1 fl oz) bottles: its Pasteurized Soy Sauce, Once Pressed Pure Sauce, and Two-Stage Aged Pure Sauce. The first is soft and sweet and good for boiled dishes and stews. The second has a clean taste and is best suited to white fish sashimi. The third is filled with umami and goes best with stronger tastes like teriyaki chicken. Try them in these combinations or create your own with this set!
