"From Kitchen in the World" is a brand that develops drinks inspired by homes around the world. I'm surprised at the products with ideas that I haven't heard every time, and at the same time, I just read advertisements featuring mothers from all over the world.
Until now, I had only been able to drink products and think about it, but this summer, a limited-time concept shop "Kitchen Traveling from Kitchen in the World" will open in Omotesando, Tokyo. I heard that you can experience Thai home-cooked food and workshops that inspired the standard product "Salty Litchi", so I took a quick look before the opening on July 30th!
What was the origin of salty lychee?Salty lychee is a drink made by adding a little salt to sweet lychee. The hint for its birth was a Thai dessert called "Roigeo", which is eaten with homemade syrup on "fruits sweetened with salt". Eating salt and fruit at the same time also helps to replenish the salt and minerals that flow out with sweat, which is unique to hot Thailand.
The store sells three types of original Roygeo during the period (500 yen each, menu changes during the period). If you eat while squeezing and crushing the floating ice, the heat will be softened!
What happens with "fruit + salt"?The "Salt and Fruit Juice Corner" is where you can experience the wonder of salt and fruit. You can freely add salt carefully selected from all over the world to the freshly squeezed juice selected from 7 kinds of fruits such as peach, watermelon, and grapefruit (500 yen per cup).
The author added "Hingya no Shio" to his favorite watermelon juice to "make the sweetness of the fruit richer". It is a well-established theory that salt is sweetened when it comes to watermelon, but it also removes the green odor and makes it mellow, and it feels absolutely delicious! This is because salt also has the function of strengthening the “umami”.
Workshops for adultsIn the workshop space, you can enjoy making food and cosmetics while deepening your understanding of the ingredients with the three themes of "salt," "herbs," and "jam." You can take what you make as a souvenir, so it's perfect for making summer memories. Please refer to the "Travel Kitchen" website for the schedule, participation fee, and reservation method for each course.
This shop, which is celebrating its 10th year this year, was created so that users can experience what they have learned at home around the world. By enjoying my favorite fruits from a different perspective, I felt like I could enjoy the summer. Why don't you come and look for "a different summer"? * All listed prices include tax
