Flipping Out: Okonomiyaki
Legendary Iron Chef and “Okonomiyaki Ambassador” Masaharu Morimoto will be joined by Chef Yoshio Saito (author of Okonomiyaki: Japanese Comfort Food) to discuss the history and appeal of okonomiyaki, a Western-influenced savory Japanese “pancake” made with a wide variety of ingredients. Evolved from a traditional Japanese tea ceremony confection, distinct regional styles of okonomiyaki can be sampled throughout Japan, from festival stalls to specialty restaurants. The lecture concludes with Okonomiyaki Academy Master Chef Shigenori Matsumoto preparing this iconic and beloved Japanese dish in a live demonstration. Followed by a tasting reception.
