Fiona’s Food & Travel Adventures
When I returned to Ireland over 10 years ago, after living in Japan for several years, it was quite difficult and expensive to get Japanese ingredients. You’ll be glad to know this isn’t the case anymore. Nowadays, these ingredients are widely available and less expensive. Stock up on the ten essential ingredients I’ve listed below and begin your Japanese home-cooking journey, cooking lots of tasty and time friendly Japanese dishes.
- Soy Sauce 醤油
When buying soy sauce be really careful and read the list of ingredients as there are many variations of soy sauce on the market which are loaded with sugar and nasty ingredients. Check out my range of flavoured soy sauces Fused range of real soy sauces which have a light flavour, use non GMO soy beans, no added sugar and are naturally fermented.
I wanted to mark a little success here on my blog. This month I was so grateful to receive support from one of Dublin’s popular Japanese Noodle & Sushi bars “Eatokyo”. “Fused by Fiona Uyema” soy sauces are now available as a condiment on all the tables in Eatokyo. I think it’s so powerful when restaurants support local food start-ups and appreciate the quality and taste of the products they use in their kitchens and serve to their customers.
Eatokyo has recently received positive reviews from restaurant critics such as Lucinda O’Sullivan and Tom Doorley. I popped over to Eatokyo last week to thank them for their support and to deliver my first soy sauce order to them. Woohoo!! I met Jay the restaurant manager and enjoyed a beautiful lunch with him (everything was so fresh and delicious). You can see the photos I took of my lunch below.
