Kobe Beef or Wagyu Beef - Which is it?

People often get confused or consider Kobe Beef and Wagyu beef to be the same exact thing. They just know that they are both expensive and therefore talk like they know. Here is a simple overview so that you will be more informed next time someone wants to talk about expensive beef. Here's the real scoop on Kobe Beef:

1. Wagyu is a breed of cows that would be considered like Holstein or angus. They are usually found in Japan, and other parts of Asia, but you will find them in other countries, like the US too.

2. Kobe Beef is the actual cut that comes from the specific Wagyu cows that were raised in the Kobe area of Japan. Not only is it the area that it comes from important to be considered Kobe beef, but also the specific breeding methods and even a specific butchering process that will render the most tender pieces of beef with the trademark marbleizing.

All Kobe Beef is Wagyu, but not all Wagyu is Kobe.

Creative Cooking - How to make a simple meal fancy gormet

Creative Cooking 
How to turn a simple meal into a fancy gourmet dining experience

Sometimes you just need a few simple things to take it from the ordinary to the extraodinary and into a real dining experience. Here are some great ways to turn your next meal into something special.

1. Take a normal meal and an unexpected spice or ingredient.
     Add one of the following:

  • Garlic
  • Coconut
  • Extra Cheese
  • BBQ Sauce
2. Rename it - when you present a meal give it an extra flourish with a new name. Make it your own with a simple alteration and then you own it. Present it like that too!

3. Bake it Again
     Anything that is 'baked twice' can be extra special. A twice baked potato is way fancier than a baked potato.

4. Add a specialty topping
     Some people have secret ingredients that they can add anytime they need some extra punch.  This can be something simple, like adding crushed cornflakes on basic mac and cheese, or adding crushed saltines with herbs onto a hot dish.

5. Serve it "Two Ways"
     When you take a simple menu item like carrots, if you prepare them 2 different ways, it will 

6. Add a matching side "Combo It"
     Paring a second menu item will give you some extra pizzazz. Combo items are a big hit at restaurants

The Japanese typically rate tuna based on the fat content and the overall size. The higher-fat content varieties and species are considered the most flavorful and tender. You can specifically look for the troll-, pole-, or rod-and-reel- caught fish.

Big eye (ahi). Deep ruby red flesh and high fat content. Availability can be rare

Yellowfin (ahi). Much like big eye, but more mild in flavor and slightly leaner and firmer. More commonly available.

Albacore (tombo).  Most Lean and more affordable. Usually not served raw.

Homemade Pizza on a Pizza Stone

Homemade Pizza

We’ve been making homemade pizza at least once a week for a long time. One of the things we finally added to our plans recently is using a baking stone also called a pizza stone. It has given us a better crust that is sitting on a better and more even cooking surface.

The pizza has always been good and we’ve enjoyed the tradition of pizza made at home but this new addition of the pizza stone really has made an improvement. We chose a 16” pizza stone so that it wasn’t too small for making a big pizza. If you add a baking stone, then you need to remember a number of things. You cannot bake cookies on them, because the butter and oils will soak into the stone and cause it to be ineffective. You also have to be careful when cleaning it – no chemicals, especially harsh chemicals.

Try 2

We also have tried using 2 pizza stones at the same time in the oven and so far the results are good. The pizza cooks evenly and the crust has been just as good as if there was only one in the oven.


Remember to enjoy the toppings to. Put on what you enjoy. But one of the most basic mistakes that most home cooks make is putting too many topping in the middle and very center of the pizza. Place your toppings in equal intervals around the entire pizza, and go within about an inch of the edge.

CHEESE: A winning pizza naturally has a ton of cheese on it. The more the merrier! I like to put a little bit of cheese on before the other toppings, after the sauce and then really put it on when the toppings are done.
