Chef Kyle Connaughton is pleased to announce a new recipe collaboration with Oakland, California-based Cuzen Matcha.
Eijiro Tsukada, founder of Cuzen Matcha, and Chef Kyle first met in 2016. By 2020, the relationship between Cuzen Matcha and SingleThread expanded with both entrepreneurs experimenting with Cuzen Matcha’s high-quality, freshly ground matcha, which has a distinctly smooth, balanced flavor and gives the drinker a mellow, focused energy that lasts. Their goal was to develop recipes that would highlight the distinctive umami flavors found uniquely in Cuzen Matcha’s offering. Eventually Chef Kyle began to offer Cuzen Matcha machines in the SingleThread Inn’s guest rooms, as well as integrate its matcha into a selection of lattes and smoothies available to guests throughout the property.
