Sushi might be one of Japan’s finest exports, but the cuisine doesn’t limit itself to fish and rice. The nation’s gastronomy is heavily dominated by noodles, vegetables, and broths, but its unique umami flavour is far more influential than the ingredients themselves. Umami is celebrated as mankind’s fifth taste, and Japanese food achieves the flavour best. Japanese cooking must comply with “rules of five:” balance and variety must be expressed through five colours and cooking techniques. Every dish incorporates five flavours, too. That’s why each mouthful is alive with vibrant beauty. Japanese takeaway in Derby will include sushi and sashimi. This popular cuisine has its origins in ancient times when locals preserved fish in fermented rice. The protein was enjoyed on its own. In those days, the rice was thrown away, but today, Japan has turned the grain into a staple food. Sushi is vinegared rice, but the nation’s chefs also enjoy indica and jasmine rice. The latter is often served with Japanese curry and donburi. Struggling to eat your sashimi with chopsticks? Stop trying. The correct way to eat sushi is with your hands, using ginger as a palate cleanser between bites. Now that’s better.
