Posted on May 19, 2019May 19, 2019 by JNew York: A Dash of Dashi Friend J, N, and I went to the Japan Society to learn the secrets of making dashi. N asked the presenter where to buy high quality bonito for making dashi. Turns out that the secret supplier is Amazon. They gave us sample of three types of dashi: kelp, bonito, and mushroom. Only the bonito one tasted like anything to me. Some salt would have been nice. The Japan Society seemed pretty nice. They offer Japanese classes there too!
