What's Happening at The gohan Society
On December 7, The Gohan Society held a unique tasting with Chef Betty Peña of Pig & Khao at Chakura event space upstairs from Cha-An Teahouse in the East Village. As one of our 2017 participants in our U.S.-Japan Chefs Culinary Exchange Scholarship Program, Chef Betty has learned to combine the ingredients about which she learned in Japan with the Filipino/Thai flavors she uses in her daily work.
Each year The Gohan Society sends chefs from the States to Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture, through our scholarship program. A city of more than 462,000 residents, Kanazawa is situated near the Japan Sea. For that reason, it’s known for its fresh seafood. That locally caught seafood can be purchased in Omicho Ichiba, the market that’s called “Kanazawa’s Kitchen.”
Our chefs visit Omicho to see the fish, vegetables, fruit, and other food products that are native to this beautiful area.
