Bunka Knife: Kitchen Knife
Japan Marche Staff Blog: Japanese Cuisine Chefs on TV
“Quality kitchen knives not only is easy to cut with, but it changes how one’s pallet recognizes the ingredients once cooked –of course in a good way.”
I notice there are many TV programs here in Japan lately featuring Japan, Japanese culture and tradition. Perhaps this is in preparation for the Olympics so Japanese would become interested in their own country since there is a tendency for Japanese to appraise everything from foreign countries but lack respect for their own country.
One recent program featured Japanese restaurants run by non-Japanese chefs in foreign countries. There was one chef who learned the basics of Japanese cooking by watching YouTube. He started by learning how to handle different types of kitchen knives, then the basic Japanese tastes, and creative cuisine arrangement. What passion it is to start learning off of YouTube! Now he owns a Japanese restaurant in Italy.
If he learned how to handle a Japanese kitchen knife through YouTube, I wonder where he learned about quality kitchen knives. From the kitchen knives available at Japan Marche, I did some research on them. Quality kitchen knives not only is easy to cut with, but it changes how one’s pallet recognizes the ingredients once cooked –of course in a good way. That is why masters of cooking take extra care of their kitchen knives. To all the Japanese cuisine chefs out there, I hope you know that Japan Marche sells splendid kitchen knives!
