Item of the Day – Bonito Flakes

By | Chef's Feed, Item of the Day, Products, What Chefs Want | No Comments

Bonito Flakes

Item 94020 – 6/1 lb. case

Item 90002 – 1 lb. bag

Katsuobushi, or Skipjack Tuna is filleted into 4 loins, simmered for couple of hours, de-boned, rubbed with fish paste and then smoked for about a month. Each loin is then elegantly shaved down to create a perfect shape and is sprayed with a mold similar to Koji. The finished loins spend the next 6 months cycling between the humid  fermentation room and the dry sunlight. Once complete, it is packaged whole or shaved. Katsuobushi is a fundamental and critical ingredient across all Japanese cuisine. It can be found in soup stocks (Dashi), salads, dipping sauces, marinades, rice dishes, sushi and is often used as a garnish.

Item of the Day – Haku Smoked Shoyu

By | Chef's Feed, Item of the Day, Products, What Chefs Want | No Comments

Haku Smoked Shoyu

Item 03321 – 750 ml

Origin: Kyoto Prefecture, Japan
                                   
A truly rare and unique ingredient from Kyoto      
prefecture. Haku Smoked Shoyu is first traditionally brewed      
preserving ancestral methods of the mushiro koji process yielding an exceptional shoyu, aged 12 months. After aging, the master craftsmen meticulously follow a cold-smoking process unique to the Haku family, exclusively using Mizunara hard wood, a type of Japanese Oak, which bears a beautiful, lively, but delicate smoke flavor. Typically used in moderation as a finishing shoyu, Haku Smoked Shoyu delivers a uniqueness and complexity desired by today’s most discerning chefs.
