Wasa Buono (Wasabi Pesto Sauce), 3.52 oz
Wasa Buono is an unconventional seasoning sauce that’s flavorful, refreshing, umami-rich, and spicy at the same time. Made by blending hon-wasabi (Japanese wasabi) with parmesan cheese, pine nuts, garlic, and extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) in a perfect balance, the sauce adds a unique character to your dish. It features hon-wasabi’s revitalizing aroma and flavor while minimizing the stimulating sensation of wasabi, so it can be enjoyed by even small children and those who can’t tolerate spicy food. This innovative sauce is developed and produced by Kaneku, a 100-year old wasabi specialty manufacturer in Okutama Valley, a place blessed with an abundance of clean spring water. Just like basil sauce, Wasa Buono can be used for Italian food like pasta, pizza, risotto, bruschetta, bagna cauda, and Caprese as well as for grilled dishes, salad, and Japanese food like tempura and cold tofu. Be creative and enjoy the original flavors.
Wasabi’s refreshing aroma and flavor create a beautiful harmony with the parmesan cheese, pine nuts, garlic, and EVOO, making this sauce perfect for accentuating any food without overpowering the taste of the dish. Use it with pasta just like regular basil sauce—you can make exquisite vongole bianco since its refreshing umami is great with clams. Also, it’s good as a finishing seasoning for pizza, rice gratin, Caprese, cold tofu, open sandwiches, bruschetta, hot dogs, grilled cheese, grilled fish and steak. If you mix it with ponzu, you can make refreshing Japanese and Italian fusion dressings for salad. It’s easy to use, and its cooking options are limitless!
