From their produce stand along East Lombard Street’s “Corned Beef Row” in the 1930s, Harry and Lena Tulkoff noticed that their horseradish sauce was flying off the shelves. Made with beet juice and vinegar, it tasted good on virtually every kind of meat one could eat. Join us on a tour of Tulkoff Food Products, now in its third generation of family ownership, as we see first-hand how they take raw horseradish and turn it into delectable condiments, several of which we will get to sample.
