As each region as its own terroir, each bowl of rice - white or brown - is full of delicate flavors. For some people eating rice as it is not easy. "Wasôzai" or side dishes of Okudo offer a full ranges of tastes to sublimate your bowl of rice.
Okudo's secret is "dashi", traditional fish consommé from "katsuo" (bonita) and other sea ingredients. We also use the best ingredients available in Japan to craft each recipe.
A long time before the gas and electricity, each house had in its kitchen its okudo. Okudo is a local word from Kyoto that means kamado or the hearth that was traditionally used for cooking. The wood was placed under two big places where the pots were put for cooking rice, soups, boiling water …
From the ancient times to nowadays, fire has a central place in the human communities. Energy, protection, fire is important for survival and for social interaction. It is really a convivial mean to gather people. Some rice with little accompanying was enough to bring happiness.
