Looking for whole Katsuo to shave to make dashi

FoodFuser | Sep 18, 2006 02:51 AM

Factory-shaved katsuobushi are easy to find, but is the intact block of dried bonito available in USA?

There's no dashi experience to match the freshly shaved. But even in Japan, most people have opted for the factory shaved flakes, or powdered concentrates.

I'm hoping that it is available on the west coast (SFR, LA). If someone knows of it, could you post contact info?
