Yuzu menu with http://yuzupassion.com Friday, August 27

Yuzu, the amazing Japanese citrus will be the feature of this menu. Recently was introduced to Tomoko Sato, owner of Yuzu Passion, http://yuzupassion.com
They are bringing to the US, some very high quality yuzu juice and other yuzu products from excellent, artisan farmers in Shikoku Island, Japan.
For this 6 course menu, i will create many dishes, traditional and unique, using yuzu as an ingredient.

Later in the fall when yuzu is in season, we hope to collaborate with a California yuzu grower to produce an even more complex yuzu menu, using the fresh zest as well as the juice. Any Yuzu growers out there, please contact us!!
