A few years ago, chefs started to include on their menus the names of the producers of some of their key ingredients (e.g. "Star Route Farms baby gem lettuce" or "Marin Sun Farms rib eye"). This helps restaurants to convey the quality, freshness and often local origin of the ingredients that they choose to use. Customers also like being able to appreciate the source and uniqueness of the dish.
Hodo has always been very thankful to the chefs who have put the Hodo name on the restaurant menus. We are proud of the fact that we are the first tofu company to achieve this "menu mention" status (see snapshot of the menu at The Slanted Door). The Hodo name is on the menu of restaurants of all types: everything from Asian to French, white table cloth to casual, and vegetarian to omnivore.
We have decided to highlight some of the restaurants and the dishes that they make from our products. We continue to be inspired by these innovative and delicious creations. So, in the posts ahead, we will occasionally write up a profile of some of these chefs, their restaurants, and their dishes using Hodo Soy Beanery products.
Stay tuned . . .
