The Japanese cuisine as a national cuisine has evolved through the centuries, because of many political and social changes, starting with ancient times, in which most of the cooking was influenced by Chinese culture.

There are many opinions about what is essential in Japanese cooking. Many think of sushi meals or elegant stylized formal kaiseki originated as part of the tea ceremony Japanese. Many Japanese, however, think of the everyday food of the Japanese people – especially the one that existed before the end of the Meiji Era (1868 – 1912) or before the Second World War. Few modern urban Japanese know their traditional cuisine.

Traditional Japanese cuisine is dominated by white rice. Any other dish served during a meal is considered a side dish. These are used to enhance the flavor of the rice. A traditional Japanese breakfast consists of a soup miso (shiro miso), rice, and a vegetable pickle. The most common food, however, is called ichijū-sansai (“one soup, three side dishes”) with a different technique for each preparation.

In Japanese tradition some dishes are closely linked to certain holidays or events. Usually not considered possible to cook authentic Japanese food without shō-yu ( soy sauce ), miso and dashi.

It is said that teppanyaki is an American invention, and the California roll, and while the former has been well received in Japan, the other not, and even worse, is considered by the Japanese sushi. In any case, thanks to some recent in American culture as fashions Iron Chef and restaurants benihana, Japanese cuisine is fused with American life slowly. Japanese food, branded as exotic in the west to 70, is now quite common in the continental United States, and has even been fully integrated into the kitchen of Hawaii.

Like most countries, Japan incorporates the favorite dishes from around the world (mainly Asia, Europe, and also, but not both, of the American continent). The Chinese cuisines, French, Italian and Spanish are of particular interest to the Japanese. Many imported dishes are adapted to Japanese tastes by reducing the amount of spices or changing part of the recipe (the kimchi Korean fermented origin, became less fermented shrimp in vinegar). Other changes include replacing the main ingredient or add any ingredients that might be considered taboo in their country of origin (as sheets of boiled egg, corn sweet shrimp, nori, or even mayonnaise sauce instead of tomato on the pizza ).

A number of foreign dishes have been adapted to the extent that they are considered almost Japanese, being an integral part of any family meal in Japan. Yet even these are considered Yoshoku as if they were imported. Perhaps the best example of this is the curry rice imported into the nineteenth century through the UK.

One of the oldest dishes is imported tempura, although it is assumed that its foreign roots are unknown to most people, including many Japanese. As such, it is considered washoku. The tempura came to Japan thanks to Mariners Portuguese in the sixteenth century as a technique for cooking fish.

Japanese cuisine continues to expand and adapt, has created hundreds of different recipes significantly from that which was the original, but keeping certain “air” with their origins. For example, the ” Curry “from India, imported from the United Kingdom, has merged with variety of foods to create new recipes. Curry made ​​with “dashi” pour over fish “udon” creating “Kare Udon”. Used to fill buns then fry in oil creates “Kare Pan” (literally “curry bread”). According to some consumer groups curry in Japan, the correct way to eat curry rice is putting soy sauce on the curry and eaten with pickled vegetables called fukujinzuke. Other recipes are so exotic that are considered culinary localism. In Nagoya, a plate of spaghetti Macha dessert is served in restaurants with fresh sweet cream, jelly beans, ice cream, and fruit. This last recipe is definitely a standard fusion cuisine in Japan.

Because Japan is a archipelago is play fish and seafood play an important role in the diet. During the occupation by the Americans after the Second World War was bread introduced as a new Western foods. The Japanese cuisine has some resemblance to the cuisine of other countries in East Asia, the most significant difference is probably the a lot more economical use of oil and spices. Rather, the natural taste of fresh produce should be kept to clearly receive. The foods used in Japanese cuisine and the manner of their preparation will be happy to provide additional reasons for the remarkably high life expectancy viewed the Japanese population.
