What Real Wasabi Looks Like

4 years ago

I was at a Japanese restaurant and one of the cooks came over and showed us what real wasabi looks like! I always thought the green paste I see in restaurants is real wasabi but that`s not it at all. Apparently wasabi is difficult to cultivate and it`s very expensive. Real wasabi plants can cost up to $100/lb. It was really cool to see it and he even let us taste it. It definitely taste a lot different than the wasabi paste. The taste was less spicy and it didn`t burn my nose. The wasabi paste is actually made from horse radish and green food coloring. I found this really neat because I always thought I was eating real wasabi all this time! Thoughts?
