Team Crave had the pleasure to cater a breakfast to Tiffany’s  at the Waterside Shops in Naples. The term “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” became famous through the same titled movie with superstar Audrey Hepburn (watch trailer) in 1961.

Samurai Steel Knife

In Uncategorized by Brian Roland / November 8, 2015 / 0 Comments

Crave’s “Culinary Ninja” also know as Chef Kevin Takei, now has a new “Samurai Steel” knife. Nearly a true katana blade.

Tamahagane ((玉鋼:たまはがね) is the high quality steel made in the Japanese sword-making tradition. The word tama means “round and precious”, like a gem or jewel. The word hagane means “steel”.

Japanese sword-smithing is the labour-intensive blade smithing process developed in Japan for forging traditionally made bladed weapons including katana, wakizashi, tantō, kodachi, and ya (arrow).
