CRAB vs “CRAB”

Both these pictures are of meat from Dungeness Crab.

Both are good. One is better.

One has been cooked and cleaned by us, the other is from a can. 

The process we use leaves a rich yellow hue on the crab meat, the the washes this away.

The rich color you see is the Dungeness Crab’s natural fat and juices that we work hard to retain. These fats and juices are where so much of the beautiful crab flavor is kept. The pale white color you see in the alternate pic is from a lack of these natural fats. This in large part is due to the process the crab undergoes during the canning process. It is soaked in a saline solution to help remove shells. As a byproduct of this process, the aforementioned natural flavor is washed away as well. 

We’re not saying one is better than the other…

 

JUWORKINGONPROJECTS

The @juworkingonprojects Art exhibition was beautifully executed by the talented Julian Gaines and the founder of Good Fat Group, Nico Fearn. Local Tide was honored to collaborate with the two on this unique event. 

Crab Rolls were served with a Cajan Crawfish Boil and an Avocado Smoothie as requested by the Good Fat Group.  Over 400 pairs of exclusive Nike shoes were generously gifted away during the event. The night was an incredible fusion of Art, Food, and Culture. Thanks to everyone who came out. Checks over stripes.
