- WILD MUSHROOMS: The Buddhist Monks who follow Shojin Ryori forage their own meals and live exclusively off the food that is seasonal and available in their community, which often includes wild mushrooms. They believe that the food lets them appreciate the full blessings of nature and helps them better absorb the earth's spiritual energy.
- SALTED CHERRY BLOSSOMS: Cherry blossom trees bloom in April and signify the beginning of spring. For centuries cherry blossoms have been pickled to preserve their unique flavor year-long. These blooms add a floral aroma and beautiful hue to any dish.
- SILKEN TOFU: Shojin Ryori meals are typically centered around soy-bean based food, like tofu, and seasonal vegetables. Tofu provides protein to the menu. This softly textured tofu is a refreshing, lightly sweet, and creamy tofu that is a lot like custard.
