SUMMER!~it's here at last. The article about Shibui!~in Market of Choice Savories will be out for a few more days. Chef has been to all the locations and sampled hundreds of new fans. The Tribe came out, too. He's still glowing from all the Love and attention. We can't wait to hear how you use the sauce to add zing to everything!~
A great big Thank You!~to Willamette Valley Vineyards for their warm hospitality over a blustery Memorial Day weekend! We brought as much Sun as we could muster from Southern Oregon and they provided the wine and music to make for an incredibly fun kickoff for the Summer. Their Pinots are world class and other varietals are exquisitely made. The new construction promises to bring even more class to an already stunning venue~meantime, they offer tastings and treats from the barrel room. On Monday we got to watch as they bottled a blush variety from the giant stainless steel tanks.
Shibui is the best on BBQ!~use your favorite sauce, rub and techniques, then add Shibui to make it POP! The sauce never overwhelms, only enhances the flavor. Pick some up for Dad, he'll love you for it!

Chef Jay’s Shibui Sauce is the perfect finishing touch and a great start too. Use as a marinade or salad dressing. Shibui enhances the taste of fresh or grilled veggies, combines beautifully with cheeses, tops crackers, crostini and bruschetta with that special zing. Makes every plate look like it was presented by a Master Chef. Add Shibui to your favorite recipes in place of soy sauce, ketchup, or worcestershire. Shibui sauce adds subtle flavor to grilled meats and fish, poultry, and wild game. Use at the table in place of other condiments. Shibui adds flavor without adding salt, gluten or sugar.
Thanks for visiting, and enjoy!
