Making Washoku: Japanese Traditional Food Items | Gallery

With the Japanese traditional food culture, washoku, recognized as UNESCO Intangible cultural heritage, here is a gallery of artisanal and design kitchen tools.

By FDL on

Last year, Japanese traditional food culture - washoku - was recognized as UNESCO Intangible cultural heritage. The definition of washoku includes not only the high class Japanese food, but also home-cooked meals. The cooking tools for washoku have been supporting the washoku tradition over the course of Japanese history: what we discover here is the traditional beauty of the Japanese cooking tools, which are in fact very modern and continue seeking for 'real design'.

This gallery is a selection of necessities to make Japanese food - knives, pots, ladles, graters, etc. - collected by HUgE (a well known men's lifestyle magazine in Tokyo) and exhibited at Milano Design Week 2014.

    From gallery itself, it looks traditional item, cooked in traditional mechanism. Such foods are more tasty than others.
