On this week's episode of Taste Matters, JBF's Mitchell Davis brings us behind the scenes at the famous Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, Japan. As the largest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world, it handles more than 400 different types of seafood, ranging from tiny sardines to giant tuna—and even some of the most expensive caviar on the market. Mitchell explains the logistics behind Tsukiji, how the goods are transported to restaurants around the globe, and how the quality of distribution differs between Japan and the United States.

Taste Matters is a radio program dedicated to taste: as a sense, cultural construct, and culinary phenomenon. However much we talk about where our food comes from, how it’s produced, who prepares it, or what sorts of socio-cultural-political implications our food choices and eating behaviors have, taste is fundamental.
You can catch Taste Matters with Mitchell Davis live every Wednesday at 11:00 A.M. on Heritage Radio Network, or listen to the show afterwards right here on our blog. To check out past episodes, click here. Stay tuned for more!
