A Concept of “A Typical Japanese Household’s Breakfast”
The concept of this gift box is a “Typical Japanese Household’s Breakfast”. It has a wide variety of delicious foods such as heart-warming miso soup, and various condiments that can be used on fish or for Japanese-style pickled vegetables. It’s a set that allows you to experience the breakfast of a traditional Japanese inn at your own home’s table.
Delicious Ingredients Confidently Recommended by Japan’s most Experienced Buyers
We asked experienced Japanese buyers, if they could “recommend a single product that they must have in their household, which would it be?”, this set consists of products from those answers. The products are not for mass consumption or mass production, they have been created through time and effort using delicious, raw ingredients from trusted sources.
Help Protect Japan’s Culture & History
Just as an example, the “Tsurubishio” soy sauce which is in the set is made through a hand-crafted wooden pail. There is only a single company across Japan who hand-crafts these pails made for making soy sauce. Why not help support the continued upkeep of this important part of Japanese history and culture through this set? Your purchase could lead to the support of the next generation of craftsmen and women.
Where the Japanese Dining Table Set Gift Box Stands Out
①Tsurubishio Soy Sauce
This soy sauce is created through a very unique method on Shōdo Island found in Kagawa prefecture by “Yama-Roku Shoyu”. Typical soy sauce is made using soya beans, wheat, and brine, however, this soy sauce takes the typical soy sauce and uses more brine to pickle it further for a deeper flavour. It’s fermented for much longer than normal soy sauce giving it a stronger flavour and scent.
Tsurubishio Soy Sauce is made in a wooden pail. There is only 1 company in the entirety of Japan that makes these wooden tools. The soy sauce that is being fermented in these wooden pails takes at minimum an entire year to ferment fully. It’s a product that has had hard work and effort put into each and every bottle.
It goes great with red-meat fish such as tuna and skipjack tuna. It has a strong flavour, so we’d recommend using small amounts of it as a replacement for a dressing or for food cooked by boiling or stewing.
A condiment that has been gaining popularity as of late in Japan, Yuzukoshō. It is a stimulating combination of the acidic yuzu fruit and spicy pepper, great for noodle and meat dishes.
Yuzukoshō is being made by a single dried-noodle manufacturer “edo-tamagawaya” which is found in 23 different districts. They created it because they wanted customers to be able to use it when they were eating their udon noodles. The only ingredients are yuzu, pepper, and salt. They’re all created in Tokyo.
A great characteristic of the Yuzukoshō is that because it’s a paste, it’s really easy to melt into dishes. you can put it straight onto fish or meat, or mix it with some mayonnaise to create a delicious dip!
③Freeze Dry Miso Soup “Shiawase Ippai”
Cosmos Foods is a company located in Hyogo Prefecture that makes freeze dry foods, this is their “Shiawase Ippai” series.
Through freeze drying the food, it preserves the smell and flavour letting you experience it as it should be. Typical manufacturers freeze the soup alongside the ingredients, but in this set, each ingredient and soup is freeze dried separately, which allows you to taste each individual ingredient properly. No chemical seasonings have been used on this product.
④Fruit & Vegetable Sauce
”Tory Sauce”, founded in Shizuoka Prefecture’s Hamamatsu City in the 13th year of the Taishō era. Almost all of the vegetables used in their products are sourced nationally to preserve quality, and they use locally sourced goods as much as possible. The vinegar used in their sauces is matured for 2 months to perfection before being used.
This Fruit & Vegetable sauce uses various ingredients that have been matured such as apples, onions, carrots, tomatoes, their home-brewed vinegar, and salt that has been boiled slowly over a long period of time. The vegetable’s sweetness and fresh vinegar create a beautiful smell. We would recommend it for fried foods as well as boiled vegetables, if you add some consommé then you can also make the perfect sauce for some rolled cabbages!
