[How Dashi Magic has created The Story Behind the Creation of "Odashi Magic!"]
Product planner/developer Takakubo was teaching soup stock to dozens of people every month when he realized that he had a problem with straining soup stock.
When he was teaching the dashi class to dozens of people every month, many of them asked what they should do with the leftover dashi.
We wanted to make it easy for people who don't have time or are too tired to take the "little trouble" to enjoy natural dashi that is good for the body and tastes great.
I want you to know that dried bonito flakes and kelp are also delicious when poured or mixed directly into dishes, and I want you to take in the rich nutrition of dried bonito flakes and kelp in its entirety to stay healthy and energized.
My years of suffering through menopause have solidified this belief.
The "Odashi Magic" series of natural dashi (soup stock), which is eaten whole as it is, is a product of this desire! ®︎" series is an original product born out of this desire.
When I went to Kanesa Katsuobushi Shoten in Nishi-Izu to ask them for this product, I learned that the production of dried bonito flakes has become much more difficult than I had expected and that the number of people using the high-quality Honkare-bushi (dried bonito flakes) has been decreasing. I learned for the first time that the number of people who use high-quality Honkare Bushi has been decreasing and that if this trend continues, we will lose the ability to produce Honkare Bushi.
Since that time, I have been interested in the "Odashi Magic" series! ®︎" series is not just a "business", but we believe that we have been given a "mission" to continue to produce and preserve Honkare Bushi, a traditional food that is the pride of Japan.
[Manufacturer: Kanesa Katsuobushi Shop]
Founded in 1882, Kanesa Katsuobushi Shop has been producing the highest quality Izu Tago-bushi and Honkare-bushi since its establishment in Tago, West Izu, by maintaining the traditional Izu hand-volcanic roasting method.
Izu Tago-bushi was recognized by the Slow Food Association headquartered in Italy on August 31, 2020, as a food of the World Heritage of Food "Aji no Hakobune" to be preserved for future generations.
There are now only two other manufacturers that preserve this traditional method besides Kanesa Katsuobushi Shop.
Also, not only Izu-tako-bushi but also in terms of the hand-roasting method, Kanesa Katsuobushi shop is one of only three companies in the whole country that produce katsuobushi using this method.
＜What is Aji no Hakobune? ＞ Aji no Hakobune among the traditional and unique native varieties of each region, processed foods, and seafood produced by traditional fishing methods, there are many rare ingredients produced by small producers that may disappear if nothing is done to preserve them. Slow Food Nippon is an initiative to select such foodstuffs based on common global guidelines, and to protect their production and consumption through various support measures, thereby preserving the diversity of food in the region.
