Chef Joe Youkhan’s Tasting Spoon makes a stop on Eat St.
On Tuesday, September 4, 2012, Chef Joe Youkhan’s Tasting Spoon will be making a stop on Eat St on the Cooking Channel. It’s been a little over a one year since Chef Joe Youkhan’s Tasting Spoon hit the streets serving up rustic Italian food. Chef Joe has come a long way with his artisan pizzas and his love of culinary delicacies like foie gras, frog legs, and now caviar. The one word to describe Chef Joe’s food is FABULOUS! No matter if it is rustic pizza to a four-course meal, the flavor is always perfect and consistent. His food truck was custom built for him and his crew so they can crank out the best food possible, even wedding receptions and corporate events for Orange County companies like Wet Seal, Tilly’s, and ReVision Optics to name a few.
Let’s take a look back at some of the creations that have been created by Chef Joe:
If you manage to catch Chef Joe at a local farmers’ market like SoCo, he’ll definitely have some breakfast items. On New Year’s Eve 2011, Crème Brulee French Toast was on the menu. The French toast was actually made from croissants that were soaked in vanilla cream with a turbinado sugar crust. This was the best French toast ever! Normally made with white bread, the croissant offered a more in-depth flavor of buttery goodness that you just can’t get from a loaf of white bread. This reminded more of a bread pudding with a strong custardy flavor and texture. The sugar crust put it over the top and I was in heaven. What a way to end a year! Thumbs up, way up!
