Before Sushi, There Was Funazushi

The type of sushi you’re probably most familiar with is haya-nare, a quick form of sushi made and consumed within a day using vinegared rice and raw fish. But there’s a second type of sushi that takes a little longer to prepare—try three years longer. Served with rice and fermented fish, funazushi is a traditional Japanese dish dating back over 400 years. And while traditional sushi can be made using a variety of fish, funazushi is made only using fish unique to Japan’s Lake Biwa. No one understands the process better than Mariko Kitamura. She’s the 18th generation to run...

The World’s Rarest Pasta Is Made Entirely by Hand

For more than 300 years, the world’s rarest pasta recipe and its intricate shaping technique have been passed down by generations of women in one Sardinian family. Today there are only a few women on the planet, including Paola Abraini, who know how to make “su filindeu.” The thread-like pasta is made exclusively by hand, requiring equal parts patience and craft to pull and fold the semolina dough into impossibly small, precise strands. Making the pasta is so tricky—and guarded— that for the past 200 years, the dish has only been served in a small town in Sardinia. This story was...

Thailand’s Purple Noodles Offer a Tasty Tradition

Kanom jeen is a traditional Thai noodle with a history that stretches back centuries.

Preserving the traditional recipe for kanom...

Living With 80,000 Birds to Make Bird Nest Soup

Resting on a steep hill on the island of San Pascual, Philippines, is a house that’s home to one man and 80,000 birds.

Eating (and Breathing) Dragon’s Beard in Singapore

For years, dragon’s beard candy—aka, the cotton candy of the East—was not readily available in Singapore. That is, until Auntie Lili came onto the scene. In 1988, she brought the sweet treat over to Singapore, using a centuries-old technique that requires pulling and molding a lump of malt into thousands of strings that resemble the beard of a dragon. Today, her cousin Roger Poon is carrying on the family legacy—with a twist. His creations let you breath out a plume of smoke, just like a “real” dragon. This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.

Mushroom Hunting in Vermont

The Chicken and the Egg: Mastering Japan’s Original Comfort Food

Oyakodon, or chicken and eggs over rice, may be one of Japan’s simplest comfort foods, but done right, it can also be the most satisfying. Tokyo’s Tamahide restaurant has been setting the bar for oyakodon since 1891.

The Last Cuban-Chinese Restaurant in NYC

La Caridad 78 is a restaurant on the corner of 78th Street and Broadway in New York City's Upper West Side. The name is Spanish, yet the restaurant itself resembles a classic NY Chinese eatery.

Some of *those* folks started restaurants, and, well, La Caridad 78 has been serving up some of the best Chinese AND Cuban dishes in the city since 1968. It's a...

Perfecting Korea’s Old-Fashioned Fishing Technique

If fishing is supposed to be a tranquil, reflective hobby, then Jung-Hoon Park takes it to another level of chill. Instead of going after his catch with high-tech equipment or a state-of-the-art rod, Park goes at it old school. The South Korean hobbyist fisherman uses a gyeonji—a traditional Korean fishing pole that dates back at least 300 years—to chase river carp. With a tip that resembles a spinning triple-helix, the gyeonji allows the angler to more intimately feel his catch, even with bigger fish. While using one is no easy task, Park says the gyeonji has made him a better...

The Wasabi You Eat Probably Isn’t Wasabi

Most of the time, the wasabi you get in a restaurant or buy in a store is fake. It’s actually horseradish that’s colored green. Why? Well, wasabi is a notoriously difficult plant to grow.

Yet for the past century, the Daio Wasabi Farm in Hokata, Japan, has been growing it successfully with natural spring water from nearby mountains.
