Fresh, Sustainable Seafood!

By | Seafood, Southern Foods, What Chefs Want

From Kelly Probst / Director of Seafood Purchasing for Boat Direct:

“Spent this past week with a number of mongers on the California coast. Well, what else am I going to do when Hurricanes have messed up our Atlantic side fishing so much?!? Hunt the US for cool, unique line caught fish to bring back home!”

“Encinitas has a special place in my heart. Grew up there, Surfed D Street for surf PE in high school and that’s where my love for fish was spawned. Fish are so cool! It is such a pleasure to work with you guys and to see how you treat such amazing creatures with so much respect as they deserve.”

Item of the Day – Acquerello Rice

By | Gourmet, Item of the Day, Local and Specialty, What Chefs Want | No Comments

Acquerello Rice

Item 95933 – 2.5 kg bag
Acquerello carnaroli rice is grown using a crop rotation system. It is the only rice variety sown on the farm, thus eliminating thr possibility of inadvertent hybridization with other varieties. After the harvest, the unhulled grains of Acquerello Carnaroli are aged for one year in Colombara’s temperature controlled silos. This process renders starch, proteins and vitamins less water-soluble, improving the consistency of the grains and enabling them to absorb more cooking liquid. When cooked, the grains become larger, firmer, do not stick together and taste better. After the aging process, the rice is refined and “whitened”. For this step in the transformation prosess “the screw” (a machine invented in 1975) is still regarded the best for the job, and is by no means the most economical. In this machine, the rice spirals slowly downwards, gently rubbing grain against grain, maintaining the nutritional values which can be easily lost with other bleaching methods. At the end of the process, Acquerello rice is perfectly polished honey color.
