Japanese Tableware

Updated: May 8

Hello,from jci_japanculinaryinstitute!

In Japanese cuisine, especially kaiseki and kappo-ryori, which you will study at JCI, the tableware used to serve the food is very important.

Japanese tableware enhances the food and makes it look delicious.

Japanese tableware is often changed with different designs for each dish for each season.

There is many Japanese tableware with lids. They keep the food warm until the moment you start to eat it and they impress your guests with the beautiful presentation and the detailed skill used for the dish when the lid is opened.

Japanese food is served with a small amount but sometimes more than 10 dishes.

Not that the Japanese are very big eaters, but each plate is small and makes the table colorful.

The other day, a friend gave me various small plates, so I made a lot of appetizers.

Aren't they pretty?

They were so small that it took me a moment to eat them all!

You can learn all these dishes in the Japanese Chef Course at JCI!
