Hello Ryda,

I met you in the PW supermarket at Westgate a few weeks ago, where you had a table set up, and I bought 4 bottles of your wonderful Fil-Fil marinade. I am writing to tell you how much my family is enjoying the meals I have made with your sauce. I cook a lot and especially like to cook meals with interesting flavors and sauces - Chinese, Vietnames, French, Italian. Now I have a new and different meal to add to the repertoire.
I am so glad you were in the store that day!

Best regards,

Dear Chef  Ryda,  I have finally found a marinade for my chicken (and I have tried many) that is absolutely delicious and reasonably  priced for the high quality of this product.  I marinated my chicken in your Fil-Fil Herbal Lemon and threw on the BBQ--- What a difference! I am hooked!!!!  I also like to BBQ vegetables   brushed with the marinade. Looking forward to trying your Pomegranate Sauce and Marinade.  All Natural too.  Hope to see more delicious varieties on the shelves soon. 

Thank you,  Patty M San Jose, California

Hi Ryda:
I love, love this marinade!  I have used it on: Chicken, Pork, Beef, Salmon and Cod Filets as well as vegetables which we grilled.
Not only does it taste wonderful, but it also saves me so much time.  I have made my own marinades in the past,  but I don't bother now, as Fil-Fil tastes better than my own and is so much more convenient.  It keeps well in the fridge and is a price performer. 
I now purchase it at our local Willow Glen Farmers Market in  San Jose; and I am delighted that I will be able to purchase it in the Winter at grocery stores.  I hope more grocers will stock it, as I have told my friends about it and they are anxious to purchase this great product as well.
Thanks for making this great addition to my cooking arsenal!

Hello Ryda,

I met you yesterday at whole Food in Redwood City when I sampled your sauces. I purchased the marinade for chicken, as we do not eat much meat. I followed your directions and BBQ the chicken tonight. It was fantastic!!!!!!
I will tell all my friends and make this the perfect gift on all occasions!!!!!
Please keep up the excellent work!

Many thanks for making cooking easy, tasty and healthy!


Hi Ryda,

I met you at Knob Hill over the weekend. I tried your chicken & veggie marinade tonight for dinner and it was a big hit. I was the one who said that I was into roasting.

If you need a recipe idea, you can try what I made. It turned out great!

it looks like something that you paid a fortune for at a restaurant and tastes out of this world. This meal is well paired with a dry white wine or limeade.


Hi Ryda,
I met you over the weekend at Whole Foods in San Mateo. I was the woman with the 15-month old that LOVED your chicken and steak :)
I made some chicken last night with your marinade-it was fabulous! I did a review on my blog
