Japanese Cookware & Pantry
A collection of things made in Japan for cooking, for flavoring, for serving, for embracing omotenashi: serving the people sitting down at your table with a full and open heart.
Donabe (doh-NAH-bay) is traditional Japanese earthen cookware so versatile that even now, centuries after its creation, almost every household in Japan has at least one of them. It’s also a hallmark of omotenashi, an approach to hospitality that is sincere, loving, authentic. Omote means “public face,” or how you want people to see you. Nashi is nothing. Combined, they mean serving from the bottom of the heart: honest, no hiding, no pretending.
