The number of Japanese restaurants in the United States has more than doubled in the past 10 years, to almost 9,000. Along with the increased popularity of Japanese food, the amount of Japanese sake imported from Japan has grown annually at double-digit rates. Moreover, chefs at non-Japanese restaurants have been inspired by Japanese food and are now using Japanese ingredients and techniques in their dishes. What are the challenges for the further development of Japanese food in the U.S.? This symposium featuring Yuzaburo Mogi, Chairman & CEO, Kikkoman Corporation, author and Japanese culinary consultant Elizabeth Andoh, Chef-Owner of DANIEL, Daniel Boulud and Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto discusses how Japanese food has become so popular in the U.S. and explores its affinities from various perspectives. An audience Q&A follows the panel discussion.
