[About KOMBU (Dried kelp)]

“KOMBU” is one of the mother ingredient of true authentic Japanese cuisine.
It’s usually soaked, or boiled in water to make its stock called “Kombu dashi” (Dashi means stock in Japanese) And Kombu dashi is typically used in cooking soup dishes including miso soup.

In this channel, I want to proudly introduce about kombu to the world as a Japanese chef, and try to create many ways of using it at home. So we can learn together!!

Kombu is available in Japanese or Asian grocery, or online. The link is on below.
But this shop is Amazon Australia. You can have a look, and look for your local online shop later to avoid shipping fee
