The secret of Japanese cuisine? Pure flavours, simple dishes and fresh ingredients. Presentation is also very important. Dishes often leave the kitchen as works of art. They say people eat with their eyes in The Land of the Rising Sun.
Rice and noodles: the Japanese eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sushi bars can be found in Japan on every corner. Seaweed is also a staple in every Japanese kitchen. TerraSana gets their organic seaweed from the beautiful Ise-Shima Bay in Japan, where conditions are ideal. Fortunately, this sea vegetable is also becoming increasingly popular in western culture, as it is rich in iodine, fibre and omega 3. Now online at Amanvida: organic wakame, arame, kombu and of course nori sheets for delicious sushi.
Terrasana's gluten-free noodles have a delicate structure and fit perfectly with the savoury, umami flavours in Japanese cuisine. Amanvida now offers a wide range of noodles online, such as black rice noodles, buckwheat noodles with sweet potato and brown rice noodles with pumpkin and ginger, along with a recipe with each kind for inspiration. There's plenty of adventurous fun to be had with 'washoku' (literally 'eating in Japanese style')!
