About Mountain Plums
Mountain Plums is a site developed for people who want to experience Japanese culture through cuisine. We believe that creating a perfect dish involves blending elements so that all ingredients act in harmony to create a unique flavor, a unique beauty, and a unique aroma that brings people joy and contentment.
Japanese cooking is an art, and as with every form of art, you can express your freedom and explore your creative side. Recipes are a starting point, but you can express your artistic freedom by carefully selecting and blending ingredients, adjusting quantities to achieve balance, and changes in preparation time that impact the dish’s look and texture.
Mountain Plums is an artist’s toolkit where you are the artist, the tools are brushes, the ingredients are paints, and the kitchen is your canvas. Our recipes will help you get started on a journey, but it will be you that creates the masterpieces.
