From their produce stand along East Lombard Street (aka “Corned Beef Row”) in the 1930s, owners Harry and Lena Tulkoff began noticing that their prepared horseradish sauce was flying off the shelves. Made with beet juice and vinegar, it tasted good on beef, fish, fowl, virtually every kind of meat one could eat. Horseradish sales soon outpaced sales of fresh produce, and the Tulkhoff’s switched gears to focus exclusively on producing and selling it to individual customers and food markets. It took their son, Sol, to diversify (slightly) their lineup. After returning from Europe in WWII, he was determined to incorporate the war symbol of a tiger crushing a German tank into the Tulkoff product line. Thus was born Tiger Sauce, the mayonnaise and horseradish condiment that today is Tulkoff’s second biggest selling item.

Now in its third generation of family ownership, Tulkoff Food Products makes a wide array of horseradish-based products from its new facility on Van Deman Street, as well as a West Coast factory that they opened in 1997. Please join us to see first-hand how Tulkoffs takes raw horseradish and turns it into delectable condiments, several of which we will get to sample!

Please note that you must wear closed-toe shoes and no bags are allowed inside the factory.

Our Baltimore Behind the Scenes Tours program has been funded by Mayor Catherine E. Pugh and the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts.
