Japan Centre Fresh: Japanese Food Recipe Boxes

We are massive fans of Japanese food here at Love Japan Magazine, so were jumping with joy when our friends at Japan Centre Fresh sent us one of their subscription boxes containing fresh Japanese goodies.  We rustled up an authentic washoku meal in the comfort of our own home, and had a lot of fun in the process! 

These boxes are available to order online, and the subscription service is great way to regularly experiment with new flavours and cooking techniques, preparing Japanese feasts that will definitely impress.

So how does it all work?

- Japanese washoku chefs will create original recipes for you to prepare in the comfort of your home. With authentic Japanese recipes at your disposal, Japan Centre Fresh aims to provide you with an enjoyable and rewarding culinary experience.

- Their team will select ingredients of the highest calibre and carefully wrap, preserve and place them in secure packaging so as to ensure they reach you in superior condition.

- Thanks to their quick and reliable couriers, all your ingredients will be delivered straight to your door in a timely manner with the utmost care. From dispatch to delivery you can rest assured knowing your ingredients will be safe and sound.

- Now it's your turn to shine and bring out your inner masterchef - it's time to cook some fantastic washoku meals. With their clear and concise recipe cards, all you need to do is follow the step by step instructions.

What Will I get?

You can choose from a variety of boxes, including a trial box - which is great if you just want to test the service out before signing up for a subscription.  Boxes are delivered every 2 weeks and include veggie, tofu, classic (including meat) and family meals. 

Our Verdict

We opted for the tofu box so that we could make Tofu Gratin With Tomato Soup & Mushroom and Zha Cai Rice.  We loved the variety of ingredients that we received, from individually packaged mini-tubs of sake and soy to fresh shiitake mushrooms and delicious tofu.  Everything was carefully packaged to ensure optimum freshness on arrival.

If you want to cook a Japanese meal but are perhaps a little unsure as to what ingredients to purchase or how much to use, then Japan Centre Fresh boxes will be perfect for you.  We'll admit it, we aren't the best chefs in the world, so the easy to follow recipe card was definitely a bonus.  All the ingredients are measured out for you, so everything is very user friendly - we managed to rustle up our recipe with ease, and had a lot of fun in the process!

We are definitely keen to try out some of the other boxes on offer now!
