Slurp up! We're getting in on the Ramen noodle trend at our new Yorba Linda store opening April 13th. Not only because fancy Ramen is deservingly trendy in the U.S. these days...with California and New York taking credit for most of the earlier action, but also because it is just so darn delicious. And soothing to the soul. And quite photogenic too!
Did you know that Ramen is not originally from Japan? You read correctly - Ramen noodles actually came from China but were introduced to Japan in the 19th century...and well, the rest is history. A worldwide culture craze, if you've indulged in a really good bowl of Ramen noodles (no, we're not talking about the 30¢ store bought packages), then you definitely understand what the fuss is all about. If you haven't tried Ramen yet, then we urge you to take a trip to Los Angeles' Little Osaka, on Sawtelle Blvd, where you can get one of the best bowls of your life.
And if you're willing to wait until April 13th and live close or are… Read More

When it comes time to start gobbling, a perfectly brined bird is the word. Thankfully, our very own blend of aromatic salt, herbs and spices does half of the work for you… one less thing to worry about once your kitchen is covered in all the Thanksgiving fixings!
Turkey is generally the most daunting part of the Thanksgiving feast but a simple brine will ensure that the most flavorful and juicy turkey you've ever served.
To start, select a fresh, free-range, non-GMO turkey from Bristol Farms' meat department as well as the brining blend. Then, night before Thanksgiving, dissolve one cup of brine into one gallon of boiling water or stock. Boil until brining blend has dissolved. Let cool completely.

Then on Thanksgiving Day, simply remove your turkey from the brine, rinse well with water, and… Read More
