Fresh Wasabi Starter Kit
This Starter Pack from The Wasabi Company is the perfect introduction to fresh wasabi.
Wasabi is very difficult to grow, 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 wasabi enthusiasts.
- 50g Rhizome
- Small stainless steel wasabi grater
- Wasabi 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.
Fresh wasabi is traditionally paired with sushi and sashimi, however, it is very versatile and can also be used to flavour dressings, butter, sauces, ceviches, gravadlax, sorbets, foams and meat or fish.
The grater included is specially designed to help you create finely textured wasabi, while the bamboo brush is perfect to remove wasabi from the grater.
Everything comes presented in a presentation box, to make a wonderful gift.
Rhizome Storage: The rhizome will store well for two weeks or more when individually wrapped in damp paper towels or the muslin cloth in which they are sent. Store in an uncovered bowl in the fridge.
Instructions included in the box to re-pack fresh items: If you have purchased a wasabi rhizome, please remove the muslin, rinse the rhizome in cold water, dry with a cloth and place it in the fridge, in the plastic bag, without sealing the bag. If you have purchased a plant, please remove from the protective cardboard layer and bag and keep somewhere cool, which is draught and frost-free. Keep the compost moist, but do not stand in water. If your rhizome and/or plant have been purchased as a gift, you will find that we have included items that will help you refresh the packaging· Wasabi label - use to reseal the postage box· Spare muslin cloth - use to re-wrap the rhizome with a clean cloth and return to unsealed bag prior to giving· Ice pack - follow the instructions on the bag to enable you to reuse the pack when making up the box, this will keep wasabi cool for 12-24 hours depending on surrounding temperature· Ask the recipient of the wasabi to refrigerate as soon as they can after opening. The rhizome will store well for two weeks in the plastic bag it was sent in, keep the bag in the fridge, unsealed. Wasabi is traditionally paired with sushi & sashimi but works really well with many other dishes. It is great with smoked salmon, steak or any fish.
