Yuzu Kosho

This wonderful japanese condiment is great on all foods and perfect balance of saltiness and heat with a citrus finish that refreshes your palette and brings out flavors in all shorts of dishes. I have spent the last two years perfecting a recipe that resembles those made in Japan and now I’m  please to say my Yuzu Kosho beat out three brands from Japan in a blind tasting. This batch pictured here will be one of three that will be bottled and sold at Marx Foods, so if you enjoy spicy and savory foods or love hard to find condiments then stay tuned for the release and demo dates.

The Yakitori Grill!

IMG_0199 (1)

Just received my new yakitori box that was designed by my good friend at Alida restaurant design. Utilizing concepts for portable grilling and giving him proper measurements he and his team in LA and Singapore come up with this NSF approved stainless steel portable box that is ready for any catered event as well as any challenges that might arise with them, like stairs, narrow passageways, or small spaces. I’m super excited to fire up the coals and throw some sticks down and see how it performs, but first a couple other adjustments need to be made. See most yakitori boxes are lined with cement to insulate them, this not only protects the stainless from expanding which can also cause the metal to warp, but it forces the direction of the fire up into the food. So stay tune to see the finished product.
