Cook Up a Storm! Fulfil All Your Kitchen Needs at the Osaka Kitchenware Festival

Oct 05 2020 - Blog

The Autumn Equinox is upon us, and there’s no better time to celebrate everything there is to know about food and drink! This week, join us as we delve into the Osaka Kitchenware Street Festival, and cook up a storm with exclusive Japanese kitchenwares that’re guaranteed to spruce up your kitchen.

It’s no secret that Japanese cuisine is one of the world’s most exquisite flavours. All around Japan, different regions boast various specialised ways of cooking – with the character of each region well reflected in the tastes and aromas of the respective dishes.

However, ask any chef and they’ll muse that no matter how magnificent, no dish can be prepared without the right set of tools and equipment!

Osaka: the ‘Kitchen of the World’

Look no further than Osaka, which is often known as the ‘nation’s kitchen’ and, by extension, the ‘kitchen of the world’. The renowned Sennichimae Doguyasuji Shopping Street is lined with specialty stores peddling all types of cooking equipment, and is a regular haunt for cooking professionals looking to expand their inventory.

Now, you have the opportunity to dive headfirst into the belly of the beast at the Osaka Kitchenware Festival, which pulls out all the stops. Think: some of the sharpest Japanese knives around, a wide range of pottery, and plenty of other kitchen equipment! There’s even a diverse repertoire of plastic food displays available. Other experiences include gaining insight into various use and care methods through conversations with the equipment makers, as well as hands-on activities such as making your own food models or cooking your own takoyaki.

However, with all notions of travel being thrown out of the window at the moment, let us bring some of the Osaka Kitchenware Festival right to your doorstep! From knives to pots and pans, the Sky Premium eStore is a treasure trove for all kitchen enthusiasts.
