What is WASHOKU Kyoto Cuisine?


What is the most important aspect of Kyoto Cuisine? The answer is in the artisitc expression of the seasonal beauty of foods. In Kyoto Cuisine, only the most selective fresh foods and ingredients are prepared. All tableware is carefully selected for their highest aesthetic qualities. Even the designs of the chopsticks are tastefully selected and respectful of the food being prepared and served.

In Kyoto Cuisine, the most important ingredient is Dashi broth made from kelp. Each restaurant has their own unique way of making Dashi broth and is carefully made over a long period of time. The most important ingredient in Dashi broth is water. The water in Kyoto is excellent and very good in making Dashi broth as the water is soft (less chemicals) when compared to the water of Tokyo.

Dashi broth is the base of every dish in our cuisine. At Yachiyo, every morning, we boil pure water with high quality Rishiri Kelp for nearly an hour. After taking the Rishiri Kelp from the water, the broths simmers without boiling. Then, Kezuribushi (flaked dried bonito) is added. Residue is removed to keep the Dashi pure, and after about 20 minutes left standing, the broth is filtered. It is time consuming, but is the secret of excellent Kyoto Cuisine.

What is kaiseki?

Kaiseki photosThe word kaisekioriginally had little todo with cooking or tea.The kaimeans "bosom"andsekimeans"stone," and the term comes from the habit of monks in training to carry a heated stone in their robes,the warmth of which was intended to stave off hunger. Over the years,the word came to mean light meals to ward off the pangs of an empty stomach.
The cuisine`s connection with tea began with Sen no Rikyu (1522-1591),the most renowed master of the tea ceremony. The hight caffeine content of the powdered green tea was almost too intense to drink on an empty stomach,so tea ceremony practitioners began serving snacks to better enable guests to enjoy their tea. Rikyu`s course was very simple at first--a bowl of miso soup and three side dishes--but the cooking became more elabolate as other side dishes were added.Although the style of kaiseki created in restaulants like yachiyo based on Rikyu`s philosophy,as chefs we must focus on our curomers`enjoyment of the food,so the structure of our courses differs greatly from the tea master`s. Today we distinguish brtween courses specifically for the tea ceremony --cha-kaiseki--and restaurant courses,known simply as kaiseki. There in another style,kyo-kaiseki,based on kyoto`s traditional local cuisine, including shojin-ryori vegetarian temple food. In a city as small as Kyoto,of course,we have seen much overlapping of kaiseki and these local dishes,so I would have to say my meals are part of the Kyo-kaiseki tradition.
