Japanese kitchens are famed for their minimalism, clean lines, and pastel colors. Today, these features are becoming trendy around the world with people looking for a more Zen-like cooking space that doesn’t distract from the food being prepared.
Japanese Kitchen Design
Western kitchens are designed around the refrigerator, stove and sink. This is not the case in Japanese kitchens, where the emphasis is on work flow and flexibility. Work surfaces are often movable so that they can be arranged in different ways to suit the task at hand.
Most Interesting Japanese Flavours
One of the things that I found interesting about the design in this article was the use of minimalist indoor plants in a lot of the scenes. I thought this was really pretty and would be something that I might want to incorporate into my home somehow.
Japanese recipes are often related to food with rice, noodles, tea, and pickles. This is because the Japanese traditionally eat dishes that can be prepared quickly or with minimal effort. One of the most well-known Japanese dishes is sushi.
One of the most popular traditional Japanese desserts is mochi. It’s a round cake made from glutinous rice that’s pounded into a paste and then molded into various shapes. There are several different types of mochi–some are filled with red bean paste, while others are stuffed with ice cream or chocolate.
The Importance of Japanese Tea
Japanese tea is a popular drink in Japan, but not in the West. It can be consumed hot or cold and was originally used as a medicine to cure a number of ailments in the 16th century. Today, it’s mostly drunk for relaxation and enjoyment in social settings. It’s also one of the main ingredients in making matcha, one of my favorites!
