Kobe with fresh wasabi root Butter!

Look at that marbling. This was one the best steaks I ever tasted ..very very good ! Somebody at the restaurant ordered this steak rare... ( Why people eat rare...they think they cool ?? or healthy ?? or like the texture ) was that is too chewy and fatty :)))) Lady...Pleeeaaas...beuty about this type of meat is marbling in a inside...which you have to melted to make it juicy, tender succulent and delicious . Medium to med rare is an answer. ive seen people serving carpachio of kobe..mmmmm... dumb idea...YOU HAVE TO MELT THAT FAT INSIDE .. by the way waguy breed is way helthiear than any other, because of the combination of omega 3 and 6..yes my friends omega 3 in steak ! Yam ! Americano Wagyu Kobe strip with fresh Wasabi root butter.. This is the best seller at the moment at Americano and lots of people gave compliments that that was the best peace of meat that they ever taste it !
Love to COOK !

Mozzarella Stretching

We pull our own mozzarella at Americano for our signature tomato peach and mozz salad. ! Also this hand stretched mozzarella is very good on pizza , because it would not leak any water during baking process !

Tuna noodle casserole

Within past 8 years in my cooking I have seen multiple variations of this dish..... seared tuna and chilled noodles...the best one hands down was at New york city chefs Dante Boccuzzis variation at Auriole Restaurant in 2002, when I was doing my culinary internship . Since then I was tryung to come up with my own version of " Tuna Noodle Cassarole" One of the Popular Version at Americano is ...Seared tuna with " Black Spice " , Sesame Peanut Noodle, soy - lime glaze, summer slaw and Fresh Wasabi. Yes , My friends ..fresh wasabi wasabi root...not a colored horseradish with mustard, typical cheap powder from a plastic bag. More on that later on this week. becose i'm making fresh wsabi butter for my kobe steak special this week.

 I have to admit....Burger and pizza is my favorite food.....but stop......not every burger and pizza is the have to agree on that one...there is something what can be true enjoyment...or true disaster ... this video realy inspared me to have one of those last night... I used brisket which I freshly ground my self ....I even added some whole grain mustard... which normally I don't do...and stuffted with cabralles blue cheese of my favorite..
This little video by Hubart Keller Inspired me to do that...after you see this video you will know what I mean...I even ordered Hubbart Kellers Burger Bar book from Amazon for more Burger adventure...
