In Japan, there is a phrase—shokunin—used to describe master artisans that dedicate their lives to the pursuit of their disciplines. While traditional handicrafts like lacquerware or pottery may first come to mind when we imagine shokunin, many food artisans approach their products with the same level of devotion, perfecting their products through generations of attention. In this assortment, we gather some of these exceptional artisan products along with everyday pantry staples essential to Japanese cuisine. You'll find soy sauce, sesame oil, kombu, bonito, miso, pickles, noodles, and other foundational ingredients.
