Chef Ford’s Guest-Worthy Recipe:

“At Classic Car Club Manhattan, we use this sauce on our tuna tartare, but it’s super versatile and makes for a great sauce with fish, steak, or chicken. It pretty much goes with everything!”

1/2 c chopped ginger

1 small/medium chopped Spanish


2 pieces chopped lemongrass

2 c spinach
