By Marcus Samuelsson | June 1, 2016


I have long been influenced by Japanese cuisine and culture, and my good friend Saori Kawano, author ofChef’s Choice and founder of the Tribeca-based Korin Japanese Trading Corp, has invited me to a panel with Michael Anthony, Chef and Partner at Gramercy Tavern and Executive Chef and Managing Director of Untitled and Studio Cafe at the Whitney Museum to discuss how Japanese ingredients, concepts and flavors have shaped my cooking style.

The talk will be moderated by Chef’s Choice co-author, Don Gabor. Followed by a reception and book-signing for Chef’s Choice.
