KANPAI TALK. for APPARTAMENT LAGO

KANPAI TALK.
STREETFOOD / SHOWCOOKING by CHEF RUBIO
22 September 18:00~21:30
@ Appartamento Lago Milano

 

In collaboration with Appartamento Lago Milano, GEN organised a Japanese-themed aperitivo with Chef Rubio. Through a combination of design and food, guests became better acquainted with Japanese food culture in particular the use of koji.
Koji is not only an important microbe in the fermentation process of many food products in East Asia but can also be used as a flavouring agent added immediately to food before consumption. Many thanks to Nousaku for their unique Japanese designed objects that helped us decorate the apartment and Streeat Food Truck for helping us cater and making beautifully crafted cocktails with Japanese ingredients.

Special Japanese Cultural Food Workshop

Special Japanese Cultural Food
Venue@La Scuola di Cucina di Pollenzo
20 Sep 13:00-15:00
Lecture language: English

On the 20th of September at the Scuola di Cucina di Pollenzo we hosted Porfessor Nakazawa from Nagano College who has been nominated as ‘Japan Cultural Envoy 2014′. Through this workshop we learnt about Japanese food culture with also a short talk by Joei Asari, a koji producer from Oita, Japan whose family has been producing koji (a fungus that plays a role in the fermentation process) for over 300 years. Professor Nakazawa then proceeded to give us a hands on workshop on how to make a ‘rose design’ sushi which everyone enjoyed eating afterwards.
