Of me working on food cost in the office…
Ohhhh, Koji. You’re quite the artist.
Last but not least – our new White Chocolate Semifreddo with pistachio powder and wasabi-apple sorvete. The wasabi is true to taste – a nice cut to the sweet neutrality of the semifreddo. It’s been a best seller so far…
Get ready, kids….. It’s day #2 of our dessert launch at SSpark!

One of our first posts on ingredient was about paiche – the giant Amazonian fish that I tasted at Malabar on our research trip to Peru this past fall. We recently worked with Cleanfish to bring paiche to NYC Restaurant Week (both SS park and SS 7) – and NYT picked it up today! (Click here to check out the article).
We’re serving it pan-seared with a miso-jalapeño glaze – mizuna and blood orange:
Check out those mussels!
Eric ordered some Honey Mussels from Cecila at Mikuni Wild Harvest last week.
They’re called Honey Mussels because of their honey-colored shell – but they also have a sweet taste and tender texture. They’re farm-raised in British Columbia and you can’t find them anywhere else in the world.
Eric steamed them and served them in a Xingu beer and aji panca broth at SUSHISAMBA park.
Felicidades a todos from the SS Culinary Team! We’re celebrating Révellion at all locations tonight – hope to see you…
