What You’ll Find Here
Here at Sudachi, the goal is to create restaurant-inspired Japanese food in your own kitchen. This means optimising flavor without making the process too time-consuming or labor intensive. Every recipe includes a difficulty rating, a break down of ingredients, substitutes (where possible) and a visual walk-through so that I can guide you every step of the way. I want to share my recipes so that anyone can enjoy the authentic flavors of Japan, wherever you are in the world!
I couldn’t talk about Japanese ingredients without mentioning one of the unsung heroes of Japanese cuisine, dashi! Dashi is a Japanese soup stock that infuses dishes with authentic flavor, depth and umami. You can make your own dashi easily at home, or learn how to use convenient store-bought dashi packs. I’ve got all you need to know right here.

How to Serve a Traditional Japanese Meal
Once you’ve mastered those essential recipes, you’re one step closer to putting together a full Japanese-style meal!
A typical meal in Japan is not dished up all onto one plate, but instead divided and served on multiple smaller plates as a set. One of the most common forms is “Ichiju Sansai” which translates to “one soup, 3 dishes”. These 3 dishes most commonly consist of one main (usually meat or fish) and two side dishes (salad or a simmered dish made with vegetables, tofu, meat or fish) along with a bowl of rice and small plate of pickles which come together to make a perfectly balanced meal.
