The original dish has disappeared, but it was a meal meant for Lent, when many Christian denominations are forbidden to eat meat. In fact, the name tempura comes from the Latin ‘ad tempora cuaresma’, which means ‘in this time of Lent’. The Japanese construed this as the dish's name and called it tempura.
And tempura remains as delicious today as it was in its early days. Our tempura systems provide golden, high-leavened, flavorful and extra crispy coatings. They are an excellent choice to coat different substrates, vegetables, fish, or chicken tenders.
