Cookpot dishes 鍋料理

Click to hear the text-

Japanese culture, which can be called "a culture of harmony," places importance on harmony among friends.
One cultural form for confirming harmony involves friends getting together to drink sake and eat, and nabe-ryori is appropriate for such gatherings.
Soup stock and ingredients are put in a pot and heated; four or five persons sit around it, put soup and ingredients from the pot into their own bowls and eat.
This enhances the bond of friendship and stimulates the discussion.
There are all sorts of ingredients and soup stocks, as many flavors and ways of preparing, in fact, as there are households.
Typical ingredients include fish, shellfish, a variety of vegetables and meats, and soup stocks are seasoned by soy bean paste or soy sauce.
