Katsuobushi is smoked, dried and fermented bonito fish. It is one of the most essential ingredients of Japanese cuisine. It is mostly used to make dashi broth which is the base for many sauces and dishes. Traditionally Katsuobushi is used in blocks and shaved using a wooden grater box.

Freshly shaved bonito flakes have a much more intense flavor as pre-packed flakes. The bonito flakes can be grated in demand and their thickness can be adjusted to one's personal taste. Using fresh bonito flakes is a must for a true aficionado of Japanese cuisine.

Tenpaku Katsuobushi

 

Tenpaku Bonito Flakes is one of the few remaining traditional makers of katsuobushi. The Tenpaku family has a very long history in making katsuobushi but it is only in 1946 that the family established its own business, which now is run by the fourth generation. The current owner Yukiaki Tenpaku is focusing on quality rather than quantity and a bonito block will only be sold after it went through multiple cycles of drying, smoking and fermentation until the fish's natural fat become umami.

 

Tenpaku katsuobushi is very popular among chefs of high quality restaurants in Kyoto and all over Japan, who do not wish to compromise on quality.
