The Iron Chef
He grew up in Hiroshima and had a difficult childhood, but he had two dreams, to become
- A professional baseball player
- A sushi chef.
Aren’t we all glad that he chose the culinary path?
A Star Chef
Although Morimoto is now a star chef with restaurants in New York, Philadelphia, Mumbai, and Tokyo, and he is famous all over the world as the Japanese Iron Chef, he confessed that his dream had been to write his own cookbook.
He labored for two years and the results are impressive.
The recipes, although challenging look delicious and the photos, by talented photographer Quentin Bacon, are exquisite.
We salute Chef Morimoto.
Watch Part II next week to see his weapons and friends, I mean his knives, and see more of his unique talents.
