oshizushi

I had some extra time tonight to upload more of the great content we captured during our time at the CIA’s World of Flavor conference. This video is of Chef Shirou Komaki (Chef/Owner of Sushiman, an Osaka-based restaurant specializing in Osaka-style sushi; with a 350-year history) in a presentation titled “Traditions of Sushi and Sashimi: Discovering Regional Styles from Tokyo to Osaka.” Chef Komaki shows us haku sushi/oshizushi – or – ‘box sushi’…
Incredible demo – and a funny chef… We had a chance to talk to him (via translator) during the walk-around ‘Flavor Discovery Tasting’ lunch.
