No its also the “sauce” used in Teriyaki, (Tare - Yaki (grilled)).

And its one of the two major styles of Yakitori. Ones salt and white pepper only. The other gets bushed with tare as it grills. Its used as a sauce for soft cooked eggs. In preparing things like natto. On rice. Variations of tare are everywhere in Read more

Tare is also the term for the dipping sauce used for dumplings. And the sauce you bush on yakitori. Among other things. Its a pretty expansive, foundational concept in Japanese cooking all based in that original soy sauce, plus booze, plus sugar (usually from booze) recipe.

Its also what Teriyaki comes from. Originally Read more

Not a die hard ramen geek here, but I know about tare.
But I’ve seen (not live, just in videos) of japanese ramen shops using some different stuff for tare. Milk mixed with miso, some other stuff. But those are kinda rare, usually tied to specific towns or prefectures that have come up with the mix.

Is tare limited to dipping sauce or ramen in Japan? I ended up using soy tare as a last minute marinade for some chicken thighs. My friend ended up saying it was one of the best grilled chicken he’s ever had.

Depends on the nucleotide. I didn’t get too deep into the weeds on this, but there are a bunch of them you can use in cooking. The two most common ones are “inosinate” and “guanylate.” Often these two are combined in a powdered form and added to processed foods, labeled as “I&G.” Inosinate is found in fish and meat, Read more

It’s hard to diagnose why a bowl of ramen feels flat, but usually my guess is it has to do with the tare, because tare is often an afterthought in the US, and is secretive enough that recipes are hard to come by. Either it has incorrect seasoning levels, was stored at an incorrect temperature for too long, or just Read more

If it’s straight theft. Because—having known a couple people with PA’s and a couple people who are PA’s—that job trips into “paid friend/nebulous levels of responsibility” relatively quickly. Assuming the given timeline’s correct and Donaldson worked for Rowling for years, it would be very easy for a couple lattes a Read more

This is one of the few articles I’ve read where I feel like I have to thank the writer for everything that I learned.

I’ll be saying this plenty over the course of your column, but here’s the second one: “thanks for this, I learned a lot.” Tare’s one of those things that’s always talked about, but rarely explained in detail and definitely not to the depth here. So this was great!

So when I have mediocre ramen where it looks like Read more

If you NEED $500.00 you cannot afford to sue someone for $500.00. You also cannot borrow $500.00 unless you want to payback $1,000.00. You’re welcome.

I’d sue over the unauthorized adoption of cats too. Now dogs or owls...

I didn’t read this as “she bought cats”, I read it as “she spent money on care for two cats.”

Well, I can’t fault her for what she chose to spend the money on.  Coffee, candles, and cats is a solid choice.

It seems weird that she would bother. Most people would only go through the headache of suing someone if they really needed the money (e.g. your former roommate steals $500 or something you’re not going to court) so you would think she would view this the same way and decide it isn’t worth it, especially with the Read more
