What is Crying Tiger?
„Crying Tiger“ is a traditional Thai dish also known as Suea Rong Hai – in fish sauce marinated meat sautéd with garlic, coriander, chilli and ginger. A legend says that this Thai dish is so delicious it even sets a tiger off crying. Slices of beef are compared with the tigers tears. But it´s only a myth…;-)
What are Nordic Nature Beef & Heritage Angus Beef?
Freygaard Nordic Nature Beef stands for high quality cows (heifer), which are bred and raised on traditional farms in Finland. They enjoy planty of exercise, feed exclusivly on grass and grow up in a breath-taking. To make sure that no hormones are used for the breading constantly inspections are carried out on the herd.
The Heritage Angus Beef comes from cattle that originate in the Canadian province of Alberta. These animals grow up in a natural environment and bred without the use of antibiotics, added hormones or steroids. They have never been kept in a cowshed in their life. Framers place a high value on maximum sustainability - from rearing to shipping. The meat is extraordinarily tender and tasty.
What are Poké-Bowls?
The so-called Poké-Bowls are originate from Hawaii, but have been experiencing a real hype in New York and LA.
The most important ingredient for the dish is fish, which is eaten raw like the Japanese Sashimi or Korean Hoedeopbap. Basically, the fatter the fish is, the more tender it tastes when raw. The seasoning is a marinade, which consists of soy sauce, oil and exotic spices like ginger, lime or hot pastes. The base of the dish is rice, quinoa or salad. Add crunchy vegetables and delicious toppings and the exotic excursion is complete.
What is Fleur de Sel?
Fleur de Sel is during the evaporation of sea water obtained sea salt. The french designation means translated word-for-word „flower of the salt“. The production of Fleur del Sel is highly timeconsuming. The sun evaporates the sea water in artificial basins, the sea salt crystallizes at its surface and has to be regularly skimmed by hand with wooden hooks.
What is Caramélia?
Valrhona has created Caramélia to combine the delicacy of caramel with an exciting chocolate. Unlike milk chocolate with caramel flavour, Valrhona uses real caramel based on skimmed milk and butter as the main ingredient, creating a unique creaminess. Taste experiments in the kitchen showed that several years of research were needed to develop a recipe that could be produced on a large scale. This delicious creation presents itself with a delicate, creamy consistency, which is particularly suitable for casting figures.
