Delux Fresh Wasabi & Plant Set
This Delux Fresh Wasabi & Plant Set from The Wasabi Company is an impressive selection, ideal for any wasabi enthusiast.
Wasabi is difficult to grow commercially, and had never been successfully cultivated in Europe until The Wasabi Company began growing and harvesting fresh wasabi on their Dorset and Hampshire farms.
This set makes a fantastic and unusual gift, ideal for cooks and 'grow your own' lovers.
- 100g small rhizomes
- Wasabi plant
- Small stainless steel wasabi grater
- Pakin wasabi grater brush
- Fresh wasabi preparation & storage guide
Each prized rhizome takes at least 18 months to reach harvest. Finely grating it breaks down the wasabi at a cellular level, instigating an enzyme reaction that delivers an aromatic, fresh flavoured pungency which has a natural sweetness.
The wasabi plant will grow well in soil in the garden in a damp shady spot or grows into a large houseplant in a pot. It is 100% edible so you or the lucky recipient can enjoy the leaves, leaf stems and flowers while waiting for the rhizomes to develop.
Fresh wasabi is traditionally paired with sushi and sashimi, however, it is very versatile and can also be used to flavour dressings, butters, sauces, ceviches, gravadlax, sorbets, foams and meat or fish.
The grater included is specially designed to help you create finely textured wasabi, while the brush is perfect for gathering all the precious wasabi from the grater.
Everything comes presented in a presentation box, to make a wonderful gift.
