Yaizu Katsuobushi Grater Bundle
Try it yourself with this authentic Katsuobushi bundle and find out yourself about the mastery of shaving bonito. The bundle consists of a piece of Japanese dried bonito (very rare, most bonito is from Spain) and the special shaving tool (grater) in order to create tasty little flakes of Umami, so good!
The Japanese people have developed a culinary culture around fish and especially Katsuobushi is a main topic. Katsuobushi is the result of simmering bonito in hot water and then smoking and drying it. Reduced to fine chips using a traditional grater, Katsuobushi brings delicate, elegant and aromatic taste notes with the “Umami” naturally present. Katsuobushi is a safe, good, aesthetic, gleaming, greedy and aromatic product and with this grater you can shave your own pieces and use them of your desired recipe.
Preparation tips: When you start grating Katsuobushi, the outer part is always fairly hard and mainly turns into powder. This powder is perfect for seasoning broths, pasta, rice, vegetables. As soon as you get to the soft part, you start making flakes.
