I want to take a moment to discuss my experience with Island Eko Pantry. One of the foods I don’t like is fresh cooked salmon. I know that I need to eat this for the Omega-3 benefit, but could not stand the taste. Misako, one of the owners of IEP, suggested I try her Jalapeno Miso with the salmon. I did so, and enjoyed the flavor so much. It didn’t cover up the salmon, but enhanced its taste and brought out its natural essence. I was hooked!
My next door neighbor, when asked of a favorite chicken recipe, suggested I try Gochujang. I had never heard of it, but purchased some from Jungyeon, another owner of IEP, who makes her own version. Since I am on a healthy food kick, I opted out from the store brought, prepackaged container. Might I say, that IEP’s Gochujang, mixed with honey, soy sauce, salt & black pepper, fresh minced garlic & onion marinated and then baked in the oven finishing with fresh cut green onion and toasted sesame seeds…..mmmmmmm! A meal fit for a King.
If I can say anything, the chefs of IEP know how to take an ordinary menu item and blend it to create flavors that make your taste buds dance. Your mouth salivates in anticipation and for more. I am so excited to have this cuisine shared on Vancouver Island. It is something I have not experienced before. In the future I hope they give classes on making the perfect Miso!!!
Anything from Island Eko Pantry is just yum! I love adding their sauces and fermented favourites to my lunchtime salad, Buddha bowl or main course. For busy people trying to create healthy meals, this is such a great way to easily add flavour! These products are made with love. I can't wait to be able to purchase them in all my favourite places!
My favourite product at Island Eko Pantry is Gochujang. I’ve tried to make it at home, but Island Eko Pantry is much better and using high quality ingredients. I use it for EVERYTHING, on chicken, sandwiches, as a dip, etc. All the other products are amazing too and you can tell the love and effort that is put into these great products. Definitely recommended!
I love all the products from Island Eko Pantry. I trust them selecting the best ingredients and the taste is just perfect! I used Gochujang basically for everything, from noodle soup to stir fries. It’s spicy, yet very flavourful. The other super awesome product is Jalapeño Miso. I used it to make dips, salads and guacamole. Love all of them so much! Will continue supporting them for sure!
WOW, you guys made it! Your All-Purpose Gochujang Sauce became my must-have magic sauce, which I always look for whenever I cook! This magic Gochujang sauce made my cooking process so much easier and way simpler! Thanks for doing a great job!
