So, what is dashi?

Dashi is a fundamental ingredient in Japanese cuisine that adds a savory, umami flavor to dishes. It is a clear, light broth made by simmering dried bonito flakes, kelp, and sometimes other ingredients like shiitake mushrooms. The result is a flavorful liquid that is used as a base for soups, stews, sauces, and more. Dashi is often described as having a delicate, yet complex taste that enhances the flavors of other ingredients in a dish. It is a versatile ingredient that is essential to many traditional Japanese dishes, and has gained popularity around the world for its unique flavor and health benefits.
