One the best parts of my job is talking with professional chefs and listening to their praises and complaints about all things food. Professional chefs are incredibly creative, combining science and art with a keen attention to detail. These qualities are critical to their success (and our happiness as consumers!)
When I ask professional chefs about Panko, one detail that is routinely conveyed is they find Panko to be hard and dense. Many of them have to grind the Panko to make it smaller so that it is not so overpowering. This is not right! Panko should never be hard or dense, if it is you are using the wrong Panko.
Taste the Difference – Authentic Japanese Panko
A true Japanese Authentic Panko is light, airy, delicate with a flaky or sliver shaped crumb. An Authentic Panko should enhance your menu item by adding a light crispy texture that is not oily, heavy or overpowering. Panko should highlight your coated protein with a light crispy texture and not fight it with a hard crunchy texture. You should never hurt the roof of your mouth when you use a Panko.
If your Panko is not light, airy and delicate don’t settle! We invite all professional chefs using a standard Panko to try Upper Crust Enterprises Authentic Japanese Panko – FREE.
