A secret of making Japanese cuisine delicious lies in “dashi”, or soup stock. “Katsuobushi” dried bonito, “konbu” kelp, “shiitake” mushroom, and “niboshi” dried small sardines are popular materials for making soup stock. Among them, the one made from katsuobushi is the most popular and has a long history.
