Description

Film Screening & Umami Tasting


The film is about secrets of the fifth taste “umami” and a unique Japanese bacteria called “koji.” The event will include simple presentation and tasting of umami. Free admission.


DASHI & SHOYU: Essence of Japan ( documentary, 100mins )

A documentary that examines how the people of the Japanese archipelago have interacted with nature and the wisdom they have gained from it with regard to food. "Dashi," an essential ingredient in Japanese cuisine, was discovered within nature and integrated into the diet over a thousand years. Cameras follow all those who contribute to the making of dashi, from fishermen and farmers to scientists and chefs. Furthermore, special microscopic camera work examines the "koji" mold spores which are unique to Japan and gave birth to soy sauce, sake, miso and other central ingredients of Japanese food.
