100% Natural, “Super-Frozen” Sashimi Grade Tuna From Tristan International
Ultra Low Temperature technology was developed by the Japanese fishing industry as their fisherman traveled longer distances to catch the high value fish. Super freezing is the only process that retains the freshness and bright red color demanded by today’s consumers. Tristan employs the same technology. Other tuna suppliers chemically treat their tuna with CO2 (carbon dioxide) to keep the tuna color red regardless of quality levels. Customers will never be deceived with Tristan.

Do you support the culture of fining that has existed under the current administration?
I do not support a culture of targeting small businesses and entrepreneurs who are trying to create economic industries and jobs that are vital to the city’s economy. Fines only impose a monetary punishment to those who have not obeyed the rules and regulations. Fines should not be seen as a revenue generator for the city, and the city should not be balancing its budget on the back of small business owners. Instead, we should be doing everything we can to foster and support our small business. They are critical to our economy and provide accessible jobs.

Carpal tunnel syndrome, 'chef's foot' and a plethora of back problems: this is just a small selection of physical health issues affecting professional chefs, thanks to hours spent on their feet and the requirement to frequently lift heavy objects. In addition to the physical strains of the job come mental strains as well. Some of the most common health problems experienced in the industry affect mental health rather than physical health, (although the two are often related).

You’re in the shower, the soap and hot water running down over you and you’re thinking about your day in the kitchen. What are the numbers in the front of the house, what last minute prep needs to be done, who’s showing up to work and any specials for the future. Suddenly, you slip just a little, but enough to whack your elbow or knee on the shower wall and ouch! You either fractured your bone or given yourself a bone bruise. What is the difference and what do you do now?

Chefs at every level of the industry face injuries and health problems due to the nature of their work. These issues range from problems caused by the job itself – such as back pain and arthritis – to problems caused by the unavoidable lifestyle that comes with being a chef. A professional kitchen is an incredibly stressful environment in which to work and it is not surprising that many chefs suffer illnesses as a result of the long hours they spend in their kitchens.
The knee joint is very commonly injured. It sits between the hip and the ankle and when we have to bear weight in standing, walking or stair climbing, it takes a beating. It is more mobile than the hip so when we turn or pivot, we can inflict damage into the knee joint quickly. It is a hinge joint so its range of motion is in our primary mode of movement, which is walking. That means more stress, wear and tear on the cartilage cushions in the knee and a lot of use and abuse in the joint.
