Unsurprisingly, Japan's national cuisine was registered recently as part of UNESCO's Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. "Unsurprisingly” because washoku is so rich in detail and so deep and broad that it will literally take a lifetime to experience it all. Among the typical washoku dishes is miso soup, which is perhaps the one most common and anchored in the Japanese soul. Almost no meal in Japan - whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, formal or casual - where a cup of miso soup would look out of place. The Miso Soup Candle truly brings this staple of Japanese cuisine into your home.
Coming in a real ceramic cup and with extreme attention to detail (check out the color of the miso in the "liquid" and the bits of wakame seaweed and tofu), the Miso Soup Candle only lacks the aromatic smell of dashi (the candle is odorless) and the actual taste (it's a candle, so don't eat it). Still this brillant candle will make a great conversation piece and will whet your appetite for a cup of real miso soup! Put them next to each other and see if you can tell the difference!
