Celebrity chef will be flying in

September 13 - 19, 2017

Gulf Weekly Celebrity chef will be flying in

ACCLAIMED Japanese celebrity chef Kazuo Takagi will be making a guest appearance at Sato restaurant at the Gulf Hotel Bahrain from September 20-24. 

He specialises in Kyoto cuisine, and his creations reflect the season and unfold cultural tales with tastes of culinary expertise dating back centuries. 

Kyoto, as the capital of Japan for more than 1,200 years, was the kitchen of the Imperial Court. It remains famous for its tofu and its vegetarian fare. It’s also regarded as a great place to sample all the main classics of Japanese cuisine.

Chef Takagi’s restaurant Takagi in Japan has received two Michelin stars since 2010. The complexity of his picturesque creations, which include many styles of preparation, is designed to appeal to all of the senses. Food critics suggest Chef Takagi’s delicate soup is the most ‘symbolic element’ of his cooking.

“The taste and aroma of a soup characterises one’s culinary style,” he explained. “True Kyoto cuisine is rare even in Japan nowadays, since preparation is complicated, but I want it to continue its long history.” 

l The Michelin Cooking Experience – a master class and lunch with Chef Takagi, is available for BD39 net. Limited slots are available, so reservations must be made. Call 17713000 for more details.
