Explore the exciting realm of contemporary Japanese catering and find out how it can transform your event into something truly memorable.

The Principles Of Modern Japanese Cuisine

Modern Japanese food goes beyond sushi, ramen, and tempura. It emphasises natural flavours and uses precise methods to make each dish taste its best. These modern Japanese cooking rules will help you understand this unique style:

1). Umami

Umami, sweet, sour, bitter, and salty are the five basic tastes. Food tastes savoury, meaty, or brothy with it. Japanese dishes emphasise umami from mushrooms, seaweed, and dashi (a stock made from fish and seaweed).

2). Seasonality

Modern Japanese food uses seasonally fresh, tasty, and healthy ingredients. Spring brings bamboo shoots, cherry blossoms, and wild herbs, while summer brings eggplant, tomatoes, and watermelons.

3). Simplicity

In terms of preparation and presentation, Japanese food is renowned for its simplicity and minimalism. Without being overly intricate or fussy, each dish is created to highlight the natural flavours of the ingredients. Precision cooking methods like grilling, steaming, and simmering are used to accomplish this.

4). Harmony

In contemporary Japanese cuisine, harmony is a fundamental concept. This means that the taste, texture, and colour of every dish should be balanced. A dish might, for instance, have flavours of sweet, sour, salty, and bitter, as well as a variety of crunchy to silky textures. A range of hues, from dark green to vivid orange, might also be present.

5). Presentation

Modern Japanese cuisine places a strong emphasis on presentation. The colours, textures, and shapes of the ingredients are frequently taken into consideration when plating dishes in an aesthetically pleasing manner. This can improve the overall dining experience while also making the food look more appetising.

The Menu: Exploring Modern Japanese Catering Options

Contemporary Japanese catering relies heavily on its menu. Here at Nosh, we are committed to making healthy and delicious Japanese-inspired dishes with ingredients from local farms and producers whenever possible. What we can provide in terms of catering is as follows:

1). Poke Bowls

Poke bowls are a mainstay of contemporary Japanese cuisine. They feature raw fish that has been marinated, as well as vegetables and other toppings, atop a bed of rice or salad. Poke bowls are one of Nosh’s specialties, and we pride ourselves on offering a wide variety of tasty options made with the finest local ingredients.

2). Salad Bowls

Our salad bowls are a healthy and delicious alternative for those looking to cut calories. These are served with one of our house-made dressings and feature a variety of greens, vegetables, and proteins.

3). Bao Buns

Bao buns, a type of steamed bun with Chinese roots, have found widespread use in contemporary Japanese cooking. Here at Nosh, we fill our bao buns with all sorts of tasty things, such as pork belly, chicken, tofu, and more.

4). Nori Tacos

Our nori tacos are another fusion dish that puts a new spin on a classic. They are a lighter and healthier alternative to regular tacos because they are made of nori sheets filled with rice, protein, and vegetables.

5). Customised Catering

In addition, Nosh provides individualised catering services, so you can tailor a meal plan to your unique tastes and preferences. Our team will work with you to design a delicious menu that accommodates all of your guests, including those who must adhere to special diets such as a vegan or gluten-free diet.
