Inspired by his Asian travels, Chef Simon Braz brings you three distinctly Japanese dishes.
Firstly, a Seared Tuna Bowl with Pickled Vegetables & Wasabi Mayonnaise, which is his take on a traditional Poke bowl. Secondly, Okonomiyaki - an extremely popular Japanese street food from Osaka. Lastly, Teriyaki Chicken Burgers with Asian slaw, an American style burger using Japanese ingredients that really turns this burger into something special.
In this class, Chef Simon Braz will show you how to create an authentic Okonomiyaki. A lover of Japanese culture and cuisine, he's learned that the food is complex and flavoursome but also simple and elegant. Okonomiyaki is an extremely popular Japanese street food from Osaka, comprised of shredded cabbage bound together in a wheat flour batter and cooked in a frying pan until golden.
The word 'okonomi' means 'how you like' or 'what you like' and 'yaki' means 'cooked'. Chef Simon's version of this traditional savoury pancake will transport you to the streets of Osaka with a single bite.
