The world of Japanese cuisine in the United States has transformed into a rich landscape of innovative Japanese American recipes. Demand for Japanese food has skyrocketed, with many reaching not only for fusion dishes such as the “California Roll,” but also for increasingly more “authentic” Japanese cuisine like omakase.
The SVJP community will gather together at a hybrid benkyokai to celebrate and analyze the development of Japanese cuisine in the United States. We will be joined by guest speaker Charles Chen, a food and beverage producer with experience managing and consulting several Michelin starred restaurants, and creator of the viral Japanese Basuku cheesecake. The session will be moderated by Mountain View City Council Member Margaret Abe-Koga.
We invite those of you in the area to join us in person to hear from our guest speakers live and share dinner and discussion with our community. For those unable to attend in person, we welcome your participation over zoom.
