Just received our Sichuan buttons

Posted on August 28, 2011 in the Resources category by Dennis Chan.

A few weeks ago, a chef friend told me about these little exclusive buds called Sichuan buttons.  He said that they “electrify” your mouth.

After looking up the item, I found a ton of videos online that show people experiencing one of these things.  The best way to describe the effect of eating one of these Sichuan buttons is to say that you have put a 9-volt battery to your tongue.

So I ordered some.

I shared the expereience of eating then with a few industry professionals, some of our public cooking class students, some culinary students, and luckily, I got a chance to share these things with some of our guests.  The reception has ranged from excited to frightened.

Who knew that a little plant-based item would bring such conversation to the table. Literally. Going forward, we will continue to seek out these fun experiences to broaden our own culinary knowledge.  Who knows, maybe the next time we experiment, we may just ask you to join in.
