Sonoko Curry Powder Tin
From the pantry of Sonoko Saikai, an acclaimed Japanese-American home cook and Tortoise General Store friend, this curry powder is made by hand in small batches using a unique blend of 17 different spices and seasonings with no chemical additives. The perfect mild balance of warmth, umami, heat, and sweetness, use this blend for the foundation of your Japanese curry or for a plethora of other dishes like masala dal, compound butter, and fried rice. It will no doubt become a staple in your own pantry.
Sonoko Saikai is a Japanese-American chef, cooking teacher and food writer with several cookbooks to her name including, The Poetical Pursuit of Food: Japanese Recipes for American Cooks, Rice Craft, and the award-winning Japanese Home Cooking: Simple Meals, Authentic Flavors. When she couldn't find any pre-packaged Japanese products in the market that were simply, healthy and environmentally conscious, Sonoko created her own line of home kits starting with her own curry spice. With a name that means "garden," Sonoko believes the cycle of cooking begins and ends in the garden and teaches with a philosophy based on freshness, seasonality, simplicity, beauty, and economy.
