Did you know that traditional Japanese Teriyaki differs from the Teriyaki used in abroad?
As the word “Teri” means “glaze” and “Yaki” means “grill”, Teriyaki is a traditional Japanese way of cooking, which gives dishes glaze. It is made of soy sauce, mirin, sake, and sugar and the proportion depends on each preferences.
On the other hand, in Western countries where Teriyaki is a big thing, most of the people think of Teriyaki as a sauce! It’s accepted more as a ready seasoning than as a way of glazing food.

Miso Soups

Do you know what is the difference between white and red miso?
The colour difference comes from the fermentation period and usually the longer it matures, the darker it gets. White miso has about 10 days to 1 month fermenting time, while red miso has 6 months to 3 years.
Therefore, there is a taste difference: White miso is considered to be mild, sweet, and light, while Red miso has stronger and richer in umami taste. White is better for making soups and dressings, and red is perfect for marinade meat or fish.
