Description

Dashi is a staple ingredient in cooking Japanese food. It is the basic broth or stock in cooking many traditional and household Japanese food and it gives flavor to many soups, meat, vegetables and stews. The umami taste of food usually comes from dashi. Dashi along with sake, soy sauce, and mirin gives a backbone to Japanese cuisine. 

Most Japanese food are simple and contains a few ingredients so it is important that each ingredient used is of the highest quality. Making a good dashi is one secret for making a successful Japanese dish.

Nowadays, we can conveniently make dashi using instant dashi in powdered or concentrated liquid form that we can buy at grocery stores. You can even find dashi bags or packets which you can prepare as if you are preparing tea were you need to drop the dashi bag in hot water. This type of instant dashi is the closest you can get to an authentic dashi and contains much lesser flavor enhancers such as salt and MSG like the other forms of instant dashi.

One thing some of you might not know is that making dashi from scratch is really easy. The only thing you need is the time to prepare it. Also, once you learn how to make dashi by yourself, I’m afraid you can not go back to using the instant dashi because there is a huge difference in taste. My Japanese husband described the food I prepared in which I've used homemade dashi this way: "the deliciousness of the food is so deep".

Who is the target audience?
  • Home chefs who want to expand their knowledge on Japanese cooking
  • Home chefs who want to prepare healthier food at home
  • Students who want to learn authentic Japanese food recipes which are not commonly found elsewhere

YouTuber & Home chef from the Philippines who lives in Japan

I'm a home chef from the Philippines who now lives in Japan. We love to travel around Japan and we prefer to stay long in each visit so I can continue to learn and create recipes from each place that we go to. Most of the cooking class I teach on Udemy are simple, traditional and Japanese-inspired dishes.

Online Entrepreneur based in Japan

We established this company called Haamalu LLC in Tokyo (registered in 2013). Luckily, Online Advertisement Department hit the market and eventually we don't need to think about money anymore at all.

Depending on our mood, we change places to live in every 3 months and subjects to study. No Alarm, No Boss, No worry. This simple life is really awesome. Let us share these idea with you.

2013年4月に西麻布/六本木で会社(登記名:Haamalu合同会社)を立ち上げました。運良く、同年11月にメディア事業/広告事業が軌道に乗り始め、ありがたいことにお金の心配を一切しなくてよくなりました。それ以降は奥さんと一緒に毎月住む場所(国、地域)を変えながら旅を続けています。過去15ヶ月の間に住んだ場所:ネブラスカ、ニューヨーク、シカゴ、サウスカロライナ、モントリオール、バンクーバー、トロント、パタヤ、バリ島、ギリ島、宜野湾、阿波池田、大歩危、彦根(いずれも30日ずつ)。

(追記)カナダのモントリオールにいるときに奥さんの妊娠が発覚したので、今はおとなしく石垣島で隠居生活をしています。ほぼ毎日、米原ビーチでシュノーケルをしているので見かけたら声をかけてください。
