Chef Kevin's passion for cooking also makes him do product reviews on his essential "tools" as an international chef. One of these "tools" is his Santoku Knife from Syosaku-Japan.
"I am very impressed with how this Syosaku Santoku knife performed, its balance and how comfortable it felt in my hand."

Another Syosaku product that Chef Kevin enjoys is the Urushi glass plate. This is the Urushi Glass Flat Dinner Plate in Gradation Blue color. Look at this flavorful dish made by him!
"As you turn or move the plate the colour of the plate seems to change. When I look for plates and bowls to serve my food on, I search for striking pieces that enhance the presentation, so if you are serious about finding a top quality plate to present your food on then I would recommend you go take a look for yourself.""
