Note from Dow-Li Kou: Duke’s Focuses On Gaining An In-Depth Understanding Of The Story Behind His Seafood
Though I grew up in the seafood industry, I was new to life in the restaurant kitchen. Duke was the first restaurateur I worked with in downtown Seattle, and I can honestly say Duke, Bill and his staff made me feel right at home. Each time I walked through the door of Duke’s in Green Lake for a meeting, they fed me in some capacity—whether it be a delicious bowl of chowder, a cook-off of shrimp/seafood items that I’d bring in to test with them or, at the end of a long day, a much needed ice cold glass of Seattle Cider. Whereas with most customers we focused on the logistics of the business, Duke focused our meetings on gaining an in-depth understanding of the story behind each piece of seafood that would be served at his restaurants.
Note from Duke: The quality and consistency of Aqua Star’s prawns are remarkable. They are firm, clean tasting with a pure prawn aroma that can only come from a superior resource and the best seafood handling.
