Traditionally cooked in the hot waters of an Onsen hot spring, you don’t have to travel far to prepare this silky smooth and seemingly delicate poached egg dish for yourself.

Chanko nabe is a kind of stew or hot pot known as the original sumo food. Despite sumos being known for their huge statures, the chanko nabe itself is a well-balanced meal, but the sumo wrestlers eat it in such vast quantities that it does pack on the kilos. There is no fixed recipe for the chanko nabe; you can add beef, salmon, pork or anything you like. If you’re looking for a hearty meal this winter, it’s hard to go past the comfort of chanko nabe – just be sure to eat it in moderation!
Dashi is a Japanese stock or broth, and it is a fundamental ingredient that provides the savoury umami in miso soup, noodle soup, chawanmushi (savoury egg custard), and nabe (hot pot). Without dashi in Japanese cooking, it lacks authenticity. There are various types of dashi depending on the use and your preference however; the Awase Dashi is a basic all-purpose dashi that goes well with most Japanese dishes.
