Fresh NowSpecialty Foods: salad dressings
It's likely that Masaki Momose began his day today peeling ginger. He and his wife, Yuki, are the husband and wife team behind MOMO Dressing, and they make everything from scratch.
"All our products are homemade and original," says Masaki, "This isn't a manufacturing factory. We make everything ourselves."
Masaki and Yuki both grew up in Japan and came separately to the United States as adults. Around 2009, they met in New York City, in English language class. They became friends over their shared experiences back home – including their love of Japanese cooking and cuisine. Masaki has been cooking since his first job out of high school when he worked at a hibachi restaurant: "I was at the big grill, cooking in front of all the customers."
Yuki is a trained nutritionist and cooked for years in elementary schools. She's also a talented sushi chef. They started MOMO Dressing when they got the chance to sell their first creative experiment together, their signature Ginger Dressing, at a local bazaar near their apartment. Sure enough, in Masaki's words, "it got a little bit popular."
The popularity encouraged them to try out more products, and today MOMO Dressing includes a delicious range of Japanese-inspired dressings and sauces. They love to work with farmers at the market to dream up new products, and their most recent debut is Apple Miso Marinade, sourced with apples from Alex's Tomato Farm in upstate NY.
"On Alex's last day of the McGolrick Park Farmers Market for the season, he gave us a lot of apples for free, so we realized that we have to make something from apples," Masaki shares.
And what does the word "MOMO" mean? Masaki gets a big smile when he explains, "My last name is Momose. As a kid in Japan, everyone called me 'Momo'. It was my nickname. And now that Yuki and I are married, we can share the name."
