Sozai Cooking School Launch Party

Cooking Japanese food has always been a mystery to me. I have been eating Japanese food for years but have only attempted to cook a few dishes like sushi and oyako don. It is one thing that I want to learn more about, especially the unfamiliar ingredients.

A new Japanese Cooking school was launched in London recently. It is the brainchild of Hama san of So Restaurant and Akitoshi Handa of ASTA.

My friend Akemi who is going to be one of the instructors there invited me along to the launch party. Akemi is a very accomplished cook and she used to be the personal chef to Tina Turner. She will be teaching a variety of classes there including Vegetarian Japanese Cooking.

At the launch event, they had Shamisen music, lots of sushi and Japanese canapes, a non stop flow of sake.

Then 2 celebrity chefs battled it out making sushi with some very unusual fillings like stilton, strawberries and parma ham. They were both taking it really seriously too.
