TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On June 20, NHK WORLD launches a new super subsite : JAPANESE FOOD.
Presenting a kaleidoscopic assortment of popular household recipes and special feature articles, these new all-English pages showcase the wonders of washoku, one of the world’s greatest cuisines.
Healthy, seasonal, delicious
With an average life expectancy of 83.7 years (WHO, 2015), the citizens of Japan are arguably the healthiest people on the planet, and good food is a key factor in their longevity. Sushi, tempura, onigiri, niku jaga, miso shiru and so much more: Japanese cuisine is a beautiful, seasonal, nutritious and delicious way to get the most out of life.
Top chefs, top recipes
JAPANESE FOOD brings together outstanding recipes prepared by Japan’s top chefs and culinary experts. Originally presented on nationwide public TV and NHK WORLD's own great cooking shows, these honest-to-goodness meals are household favorites, and many are simple to prepare. Even a brief look around the site will reveal a host of meat, fish, vegetable and tofu dishes for parties, snacks and many other purposes, along with clear explanations of terms and techniques.
Writing that reveals the appeal
Japanese cuisine goes way beyond just food, reflecting history, popular beliefs and different ways of life. While washoku was added to UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list in 2013, the dynamic evolution of Japanese cuisine never ceases. JAPANESE FOOD explores both tradition and innovation in feature articles published each week, covering everything from the details of dashi to the best of bento. Even if you're not much of a cook, you'll find these articles are a valuable source of cultural insights.
