Cooking Basics

Shiitake mushrooms - removing the hard base

The hard base, called "ishizuki" in Japanese, is the blackish tip at the end of the stem. Use a knife to cut or scrape off this portion.

Daikon radish - julienned

Peel the daikon radish and cut into 4 to 5 cm (1.5 to 2 in.) long pieces. Slice into 1 to 2 mm (0.1 in.) thick planks, stack by sliding these gradually, and then slice up into thin sticks from end to end.

Carrots - julienned

Cut into 4 to 5 cm (about 2 in.) lengths and peel each piece. It will be safer and easier to cut if the edge is thinly sliced off to create a flat surface and this cut surface is placed face down. Slice into 1 to 2 mm (0.5 in.) thick planks, stack by sliding these gradually, and then thinly julienne from end to end.
