Two leading food companies have devised a flagship sauce that packs all the color, taste and characteristics of Japan’s Tokushima Prefecture in a bottle.
Months of collaboration between Bando Foods and Kawazoe Orchard has resulted in the tangy and spicy Bakasco, a yuzu-infused pepper-like sauce, designed to give food an extra boost in quality.
The sauce defines the very essence and charm of the nature-rich Tokushima as all the selected, main ingredients packed into a bottle of Bakasco – chilli peppers, yuzu juice, and persimmons – are sourced from the prefecture.
Bakasco has been certified organic by the Japanese Standards of Agriculture (JAS). It is perfect for pork stir-fries, gyozas, thick Japanese noodles and fried foods.
The sauce, which comes in a 60ml bottle, can also be used to make spaghetti with oil and garlic, and be used with assorted seafood rice bowls, sashimi, oysters, roast beef, meat dishes, soups,
