Thin Skipjack Tuna Shavings
Located in the port town of Makurazaki in the far southern end of Kyushu, Matoba Suisan uses traditional methods to make katsuobushi (dried skipjack tuna). Third generation Matoba-san believes that while many in the food industry have chosen expediency, his company must stick to tried and true methods to produce a high quality product. He is fiercely protective of the traditional methods used at his company, perhaps because his products are used to make dashi, which is the foundation of traditional Japanese cuisine. With only two ingredients plus water, dashi should be made with only the best. Matoba-san must feel the great weight of responsibility to produce high quality katsuobushi that can yield a dashi worthy of the best traditional Japanese cuisine.
