For more depth of flavour.

Get complex and authentic tastes out of your Japanese cooking with Takara's cooking sake. Made with no added salt or artificial flavouring, this cooking sake serves the dual purpose of killing unpleasant odours in fish and meat, and helping the surrounding flavours be absorbed into the meat or fish. A slightly different cooking alcohol.

ITEM ID: #3600


The use of cooking sake in Japanese cuisine can be seen as the Japanese equivalent to adding red wine to a hearty pasta or stew. Cooking sake gives depth to the flavour of food, and it can be added to sauces and marinades, or used instead of white wine in Western cuisine for something a little different. For Japan Centre's range of cooking sakes, take a look in the Mirin & Cooking Sake section.
