3 essential Japanese ingredients for any Asian recipe

Recreate your favourite Japanese and Asian dishes or add a splash of Japanese flavour to your daily cooking. Master the art of ramen and Japanese sushi rice or elevate your favourite European dishes with our selection of vinegars as part of our new Kitchen Essentials Range.

Rice VinegarRice Vinegar

A pure rice vinegar with a mellow yet rich umami flavour that adds a unique taste, tang and aroma without overpowering your dish.

Use to mix your own sushi vinegar, for pickling Sunomono (pickled vegetables) or to cook Japanese classic dishes such as tori no sappari ni (simmered chicken with vinegar).

Its balance of richness and acidity makes it the perfect base of many salad dressings, sauces, marinades, pickles, stews, and stir-fries… explore our recipes to get inspired!

Honteri – Mirin-style seasoning

A versatile and authentic mirin-style seasoning that adds sweetness, a depth of flavour and a beautiful glossy shine to any dressing, sauce, marinade or soup.

It is a great replacement for cooking alcohol, in deglazing or adding umami; and an easier way than using sugar to sweeten your dishes with a more rounded flavour.

Its versatility provides elevated flavour across an array of mirin recipes and is perfectly paired alongside Okonomiyaki (savoury pancake) and Gyoza (pan-fried dumplings).

Explore our recipes to see how this chef’s secret weapon adds that Asian umami flavour into your cooking.

Sushi Rice SeasoningSushi Rice Seasoning

Seasoned with sake cake and kelp to add a deep umami flavour, it is the ultimate sushi seasoning to help you make perfect sushi rice and master any Japanese sushi rice recipe, or for simply adding a special touch to any rice dish.

Great also as a more mellow base for dressings or pickling, explore our recipes to get inspired!

Available at most Asian supermarkets across Europe.
