For centuries, soy sauce has been an indispensable ingredient in Japanese and Chinese cuisines -- but these days, the taste of soy sauce goes beyond Japanese and Chinese food. This versatile seasoning brewed from soybeans, wheat and salt is now considered essential in the health-conscious Western kitchen, and today we add soy sauce to just about everything, from hamburgers to stews, from salads to desserts.
