Mexican food has its cilantro; Italian food has its basil. For Japanese cooking, shiso is the signature herb.
This pungent herb lends color and tang, rendering ordinary rice into a savory treat and green plums into mouth-watering accents. In other words, it makes the plain, fine.
We celebrate this herb with a Museum exclusive apron. Wear it proudly whenever you cook with fresh herbs grown from seeds you planted yourself from the Kitazawa Seed Company.
Apron is poly/cotton and can be used in the garden with handy pockets for holding seeds or kitchen supplies. One size 24" long.
