Notes

Dashi is the all purpose soup base and seasoning used in Japanese cooking.

Now that you know the way to make it, let me suggest that you use a powdered soup base called Dashino-moto and follow package directions.

I use one made by Shiyama form Japan.

If you don’t have a Japanese store handy try a Korean grocery.

This is the foundation of all good Japanese dishes. Thanks for the recipes. Cheers...

A dash of local for every season
