Like a good haiku,
washoku is dependent on the four seasons
for fresh ingredients.

During the Heian period, food had not been the subject of poetry, but with haiku during the Edo period, all kinds of vegetables, fish dishes and especially the sweets for the tea ceremony, food became a popular topic for poetry, especially haiku.


Even the traditional sweets, wagashi (和菓子)
have a seasonal component to it.

Japanese Food ... Washoku 和食

"WASHOKU" is a term for the traditional Japanese cuisine, which usually includes Sashimi, Sushi, Tempura, fresh fish and a lot of seasonal vegetables.
It is sometimes also called "Nihonshoku" 日本食.
Considering the geographical position of Japan, it has a wide variety of regional specialities, form the North of Hokkaido to the subtropical cuisine of Okinawa.

quote
Japanese cuisine has developed over the centuries as a result of many political and social changes. The cuisine eventually changed with the advent of the Medieval age which ushered in a shedding of elitism with the age of Shogun rule. In the early modern era massive changes took place that introduced Western culture to Japan.

The modern term "Japanese cuisine" (nihon ryōri, 日本料理 or washoku, 和食) means traditional-style Japanese food, similar to what already existed before the end of national seclusion in 1868. In a broader sense of the word, it could also include foods whose ingredients or cooking methods were subsequently introduced from abroad, but which have been developed by Japanese who made them their own. Japanese cuisine is known for its emphasis on seasonality of food (旬, shun), quality of ingredients and presentation.

The boat for serving food is made from matsu, sugi or hinoki pines.




They are easy to use and throw-away for food stalls at the roadside and are offered in large quantities.

kyoogi, kyōgi 経木 "lit. sutra tree"
paper-thin sheets of wood


This type of sheet for writing was widely used before the advent of cheap paper.
It was quite practical, since it could easily be "erased" by shaving over the wooden plate and start again.

Since most offerings to the deities in Buddhism were placed on these sheets, written with a sutra text (kyoo 経), the naming became popular.

Later it was also used to wrap food items. Also small ply boxes (oribako 折箱) are made to store bento for station lunch boxes.

Now kyogi is also used to make other items, like toys, ikebana flower arrangement accessories and others.

- quote
Kyogi is a wooden paper from Japan.
It is thinly shaved pine wood and has a smooth surface. It is semilucent with a wonderful wooden smell.
Traditionally Kyogi was used to wrap food, onigiri, fishes or sweets. It was also used to wrap obentos in. Kyogi found a revival in the ecological minded world and is even seen in restaurants recently.

Seen by European eyes it has a Scandinavian touch with its bright wooden tone and its mat surface.
Kyogi can be rolled, twisted, cut, teared, stenciled, painted on, tinted, glued and stapled into many shapes. It allows your creativity to flow free.

kyogibune, boats from paper-thin sheets of wood


(mostly wood from hinoki or sugi pines)
There are people on board, linked to the paper strips hanging down. When the wind moves these strips, the boatman starts rowing, the man dances with his umbrella.
This art has died out at the early Showa period.

. ズッチニ スープ zucchini soup with ハリッサ .  


:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Harissa (Arabic: هريسة‎)
is a Maghrebian hot Chili pepper paste whose main ingredients are roasted red peppers, serrano peppers and other hot chili peppers and spices and herbs such as garlic paste, coriander seed, or caraway as well as some vegetable or olive oil for preservation. It is most closely associated with Tunisia, Libya and Algeria but recently also making inroads into Morocco according to Moroccan food expert Paula Wolfert.
As with the European cuisine, chili peppers were imported into the Maghrebian cuisine via the Columbian Exchange, presumably during the Spanish occupation of Tunisia between 1535 and 1574. Harissa can also be found in countries with a strong Arab presence such as France or Germany.
