DeBragga Has Japanese Wagyu for Sale

After an almost two and a half year absence from any global market, authentic Japanese Wagyu is once again available for sale here in the United States, through the national fine meat distributor, DeBragga, New York’s Butcher®.  DeBragga deals exclusively in Japanese Wagyu designated A5, the highest possible quality designation for Wagyu in Japan.  DeBragga is selling their Japanese Wagyu to restaurants and hospitality industry businesses through its wholesale business, and to consumers across the country through its online retail store, www.DeBragga.com.

The Japanese Wagyu at DeBragga.com comes directly from Japan.  This is not "Kobe-style," it is the REAL thing.  Premium Wagyu A-5 is a designation accorded only the highest quality 100% Japanese Kuroge Wagyu, raised in Japan by the experts, then shipped fresh to DeBragga.  DeBragga works with their colleagues in Japan to maintain strict inventory controls to guarantee a top quality, authentic beef product every time. This 100% Wagyu beef comes to DeBragga complete with traceability certificates that begin at inception (certificates on file at DeBragga). This Wagyu beef averages 30 months of age, raised with care, naturally, which produces superior tenderness, richer flavor, and above all, superior marbling.  This is the best beef your money can buy.

CRYSTAL CRUISES TO LAUNCH EVENING BISTRO

With almost a dozen dining choices on each ship, Crystal Cruises’ most popular daytime gathering spot, The Bistro, is expanding to evening hours.  Reflecting the space’s European-style sidewalk café ambiance, the complimentary menu will offer “small bites,” desserts, and “midnight” snacks, along with premium wines and flavored coffees.  The new nightly café debuts in April on Crystal Symphony and June on Crystal Serenity, shortly after the ships go all-inclusive.

The Bistro has long been a meeting place for cruisers due to its central location and quick, easy access to continental breakfast, fresh fruits, afternoon snacks, and wide selection of teas and coffee drinks, from morning to late afternoon.  Signature Guy Buffet china and Six-Star service remains at night, but gastronomic offerings greatly expand:

· 6-8 pm: Charcuterie of cured meats, prosciuttos, and pâtés, plus international cheeses paired with premium wines and champagne.

· 8-11 pm: Artisanal cheeses, with complementary accompaniments such as truffle honey and fig chutney, plus an assortment of fresh fruits and desserts, including a chocolate fountain and petit fours handmade by onboard pastry chefs, with fine wines, digestifs, and hot drinks.

· 11 pm-12 am: Late-night munchies such as mini-sandwiches, freshly-baked pizzas, quiche, tandoori chicken, and trendy beef “sliders.”

“In traditional Crystal luxury fashion, our evening Bistro brings aboard the elegance and international panache of a European café experience—a central place to meet, people-watch, and enjoy a glass of wine or espresso and a snack,” says Vice President Food and Beverage Operations Toni Neumeister.  “In addition, this expansion really enhances the culinary and social options for guests who spend a full day sightseeing and/or like to mix up their evening dining.”

Casual dining on deck is also offered most evenings with a new Chinese “Comfort Food” menu augmenting choices on Crystal Serenity.

Extraordinary culinary experiences are a hallmark of every Crystal vacation.  The ultra-luxury line’s extensive, innovative choices for gourmandizing include coveted cheese and wine cellars, overseen by on-board, certified cheese and wine sommeliers (Court of Master Sommeliers-certified); fresh, chef-like cocktails served by certified mixologists; gourmet dining options at every meal, whether in the Crystal Dining Room, at afternoon tea, or in Nobu Matsuhisa and Piero Selvaggio’s specialty restaurants; and, starting this spring, all-inclusive premium spirits, fine wines, and champagnes throughout the ship.

Good, Healthy and Delicious Offerings From ORGANICVILLE

ORGANICVILLE ANNOUNCES ORGANIC KETCHUP AND BARBEQUE SAUCES

 

Organicville Brings a Healthy Alternative To The Condiment Aisle

Organicville Foods Inc. of Emeryville, California has introduced its newest line of USDA certified organic, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free products with no sugar added. With the agave-sweetened ketchup and two barbeque sauces to suit every taste,

Organicville’s line of healthy, socially-conscious foods is offering every customer and every family a tasty alternative for adorning every-day meals.

We LOVED the KETCHUP. Forget that “name brand” that we American’s adored (I’m as guilty as the next . . . it was very good). You have never tasted (even in a restaurant) a Ketchup so intense, complex and downright delicious. (OK. It’s good for you as well.)

Organicville’s exciting new Organic Ketchup is made with the finest vine-ripened tomatoes and organic seasonings, without any sugar added! Most brands sweeten ketchup with high-fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners; these synthetically processed substances dangerously impact the glycemic levels in many food favorites. Sweetened with agave nectar, Organicville’s richly flavored ketchup has the fresh, hearty taste and texture kids expect, with 25% less sodium for health-conscious parents. This ketchup will add a zesty flare to burgers, hot dogs, french fries, and more.
