Walnuts may not be the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks about Japanese food, but Nagano Prefecture is Japan’s leading walnut producing region with some unique local specialties such as kurumi soba (soba noodles dipped in a walnut sauce).
These organic walnut sauces are made from organic walnuts grown using agricultural methods which do not rely on chemical pesticides or fertilizers. The walnut sauce showcases natural walnut flavor while the miso and walnut sauce includes another local specialty, Shinshu miso. Shinshu is the olden feudal name of Nagano and produces its own all-purpose miso made from rice koji, soybeans and salt. Its mild flavor perfectly complements the nutty flavor of walnuts (in fact, it took Bioca two years to create the right balance of flavors!). Another addition, creating a sweet undertone, is kokuto (black sugar from Okinawa, Japan’s southernmost tropical islands). Kokuto is made from pure, local sugarcane juice that is boiled down to create a natural, licorice-tasting sugar.
Bioca, whose name combines “Bio” meaning organic and “ca” meaning gorgeous, valuable, home, and capable, was established in 1996 and later relocated to the nature-rich town ofShinshūshinmachi inNagano.They believe “Choosing organic food is a way to create one’s future self”.
Suggested uses: Use in hot pots, as a dipping sauce for noodles (combine one packet with 1.5 Tbsp water), in tofu dishes, as a sauce for cooked vegetables, meat, fish or deep fried foods such as tonkatsu (pork cutlets), to marinate meat or fish to make a teriyaki dish, as a side dish dressing for boiled thinly sliced pork and onions, on rice cakes, or even on vanilla ice cream!
