It is a challenge to judge which country has the best food. People’s preferences are always different, and there are always more sides to a cube than what we might have imagined it to be. However, this basic theory cannot be applied to Japanese food. It is almost impossible for anyone to dislike the subtle blends of fresh, raw seafood with exotic, tropical flavors of enriching soy sauce and nose-crinkling, spicy Wasabi paste.
The perfect blasts of flavors that light up the sparks in your stomach and the extreme happiness after that small bite of Salmon sushi not only boosts the levels of endorphin, but also keeps the stress away. If this applies to most people out there, then Japanese cuisine is surely an exception to the latter theory.
The truth behind Japanese food isn’t luck – it’s hard work. Unlike other cuisine, Japanese delicacies shine with distinctive features; among those, include intricacy and delicateness. Intricacy is often viewed as a complication in any process; however, Japanese food will never be this much appreciated without it.
Most Japanese delicacies like sushi and sashimi are hand-crafted – this means all sushi pieces are hand-formed and all raw ingredients freshly-selected from sea are sliced, cut, chopped, and filleted with mere skills of the blades. This truly makes Japanese cuisine ‘different’.
The techniques and skills to utilize the Japanese knives passed on from generations to generations are then ‘treasures’ to Japanese food aspiring chefs and those with dreams to become the ‘true’ Japanese food chef.
Using a Japanese knife will require a lot of hard work. Nevertheless, a wise selection of Japanese knife models will play an important part when it comes to food preparation processes that may differ from one another, depending on the dishes chefs are preparing. Therefore, Japanese delicacies like sashimi and sushi will require great selections of Japanese knives that are not only durable, but are as well efficient, extremely sharp, rust resistant, stain resistant, and are equipped with hard edges and strong blade bodies.
