Know any aspiring teenage chefs? Although I'm slightly above the 12th grade cut off myself, I encourage all UmamimarTEENS in the greater New York area to take a look at Japan Society’s 11-day summer workshop Japanese Cuisine 101: Washoku in August, which focuses on health and wellness through Japanese food.
During the last workshop in 2008, Kayoko joined the group on a private tour of the fish distributor Uoriki Fresh in New Jersey, and stepped inside their “Superfreezer”, which goes down to -72 degrees! Check out her post and the video of the freezer here. This year’s schedule promises even more insider tours of culinary facilities, cooking sessions with professional chefs, and talks with experts in the industry.
Although the June 3rd priority deadline is upon us, applications will be considered on a rolling basis after that date. More info and both general and tuition-waiver applications can be found here.
Kayoko can attest to how cool these experiences are!
