Kings Co Imperial – Soy Braised Ichiban Eggplant with Summer Herb Salad


“This is one of my favorite recipes using homegrown Ichiban Eggplants and assorted herbs from the garden.  It’s light and refreshing but still packed with flavor and color” – Tracy Jane Young. Co-Owner, Kings Co Imperial.



This recipe gives back to Maison De Meow.

Maison De Meow strives to get stray cats off of the streets and into loving homes in New York City as well as into homes all along the East Coast. The most rewarding part of their job is to see a cat that has been designated to a life of hardship and pain on the streets, rehabilitated to one that purrs and finds reciprocated love.

When you adopt, you’re not just giving a deserving cat a home, you’re also reducing the demand for pet mills and other industrial-scale breeding operations that put profit before animal welfare. These cats have been found on the streets of the five boroughs of New York City, often under life-threatening circumstances, and are given a new chance at life and love.
