Fresh Wasabi Rhizome (Cheapest & biggest Rhizomes online Guaranteed)
Sourced from all over the world.
Did you know that almost all wasabi used in the UK to make sushi is fake? Wasabi pastes commonly used are actually a mix of mustard, horseradish, green colouring and if you're lucky, a little bit of real wasabi. The reason for this is that real wasabi takes between 2-3 years for each root to grow and requires only the most perfect growing conditions.
After months of procurement, we successfully diverted a portion of Asia's natural wasabi harvest from Tokyo's sushi bars to the UK. Our customers, including some of Europe's leading sushi chefs, love it. It really is a superior product, less harsh, subtly sweet and infinitely more refreshing than wasabi paste. So next time you buy our sushi online, be sure to try some fresh wasabi!

How to use Fresh Wasabi
We recommend buying 10-15g of fresh wasabi per person. To use wasabi, scrub and clean the hard outer surface, then grate in a circular motion using a fine grater. Gather the grated wasabi into a ball using your hand and leave to oxidise for around 5 minutes for the flavour to develop. Fresh wasabi will loose its flavour after 15 - 20 minutes, so enjoy immediately!
Fresh wasabi should be refrigerated, wrapped in a damp cloth or towel and run under fresh running water every 2-3 days for maximum longevity.
