Japan is known for its versatile culture, economy and history. Thinking about Japanese cuisine inevitably leads to the world-famous Sushi and with it a very distinct image: rice and raw fish are indispensable ingredients. The Japanese love fresh ingredients and are adverse to long cooking times; they prefer the natural taste.
Each Japanese region has its own culinary specialties. Owing to centuries of isolation, the Japanese have learned to perfect seasonal cuisine and to make the most of local ingredients. Apart from fresh ingredients the aesthetic presentation of food is of outstanding importance. Even the smallest culinary delights are artfully prepared. The Japanese think holistically, thus cooking, art and philosophy are inseparable. The right choice of knife is an essential part of the joy of cooking.
