[About the rice]
60-70% of the whole dish is actually rice. So pay attention to the rice is important.
Use descent Japanese rice. Soak minimum 1 hour (Maximum over night) with water and kombu (1% of the weight of the rice) after rice is washed.
This will bring up the whole thing lot better.



Q: Can I skip Sake?
A: Yes you can. But you don’t need to buy expensive Sake.
We Japanese use Ryorishu (Cooking sake) which is cheap.
Or Rice wine could be an another choice

or replace with Kombu dashi powder
or MSG

A: The brand is “Pro cooker”
Please search “Pro cooker pan”

Q: Do I leave kombu when I cook rice?
A: Yes. Wash rice normally.
Soak with kombu. Cook the rice with the same water and kombu


[About KOMBU]

“KOMBU” is one of the mother ingredient of true authentic Japanese cuisine.
It’s usually soaked, or boiled in water to make its stock called “Kombu dashi” (Dashi means stock in Japanese) And Kombu dashi is typically used in cooking soup dishes including miso soup.

In this channel, I want to proudly introduce about kombu to the world as a Japanese chef, and try to create many ways of using it at home. So we can learn together!!
