かつおぶし

Bonito Flakes

Japanese cuisine uses “bouillon”.

It’s from fish, meat, etc.

One of them has a “bonito flakes”. It is made from bonito that is dried tightly enough then shaved thinly.

Cats love bonito flakes.

When a Japanese person traveled to the UK, she gave it to a local cat (after getting permission from the owner). The cat was so delighted with it.

From then on, the bonito flakes were pleased as the cat was wriggling and begging before the Japanese gave it.

It is a generous ingredient for Japanese people but it is unusual overseas.

日本の料理は「だし」を使います。
魚や肉などから取ります。
その中の一つに「かつおぶし」がありますが、
カチカチに硬くなるまで干したかつおを薄く削ったものです。
猫はかつおぶしが大好きです。
ある日本人がイギリスへ旅行した時に
現地の猫さんに(飼い主さんに許可をもらってから)
かつおぶしをあげたところ、大喜びで食べました。
それからは、あげる前から猫が身悶えしておねだりする、
というくらいかつおぶしが喜ばれました。
日本人には当たり前の食材であるかつおぶしですが
海外では珍しいですね。
