Pantry Basics – SALT

May 1, 2020 | TSUDOI Project | 0 comments

Pantry Basics - SALT

Our theme is SALT, part of a series on basic pantry items. In these projects the focus is on how to make the most of the item being highlighted, not about what brand to buy, or to introduce obscure products.

I’ll be talking about how each pantry item is typically used in Japanese kitchens, and in that way suggest ideas for you in your kitchen. These themed projects are not meant to be comprehensive – rather each will zoom in on some small aspect of Japanese culinary culture.

On the TSUDOI Project group on Facebook, you’ll find a short video presentation about SALT; please take a look.

Members of the Facebook group are invited to post one (or several) photos of YOUR salt project to this page. Can’t wait to see what you’re making in your kitchen…
