Discovering the Japanese beginnings of Tenderstem® with Sakata

Have you ever wondered how Tenderstem® was created? The versatile brassica originated in Japan where it was bred by seed specialists at a company called Sakata, about 20 years ago. Since then Tenderstem® has become a much-loved vegetable thanks to its unique combination of flavour and texture and its versatility. Members of the team from Sakata recently travelled from Japan to the UK. To mark their visit, we invited renowned food journalists, food stylists and chefs to celebrate Tenderstem®’s Japanese roots at the prestigious SW3 Dinings, Knightsbridge, with an opportunity to learn more about the origins of our favourite vegetable and to enjoy the ultimate Tenderstem® 7-course dining experience.

Tenderstem®’s National Recipe Hunt winner, Isabel Morgan, came to London to meet celebrity judge Donal Skehan on Friday 28th July. Isabel, along with bloggers and journalists, took part in a Cooking with Tenderstem® event where they re-created Isabel’s winning dish, Very Green Tenderstem® Pasta, and Donal’s Charred Tenderstem® with Tahini Yoghurt and Chilli Vinaigrette. Isabel said of the Cooking with Tenderstem® event “I really enjoyed the event on Friday. It was a great experience meeting and cooking alongside Donal, other food bloggers and the Tenderstem® team! It was very cool to see everyone cook the recipe I had put together and even better trying Donal's charred Tenderstem® recipe.”  Isabel entered the Recipe Hunt competition because she was “googling for inspiration as to what to do with the vegetable when I stumbled on the competition on Tenderstem®’s website. I make pesto a lot as I pretty much have it on everything, so I experimented with adding in Tenderstem® and it turned out pretty well!” Congratulations to Isabel, who will be taking her prize of a trip to Paris in October and a big thank you to our celebrity judge, Donal Skehan!
