You are here
Yamaguchi kept the demo light with frequent jokes mixed with in-depth explanations of various cooking methods and ways of creating complex layers of flavors. He stressed several times that when cooking, you shouldn't concentrate on the recipe, but focus on understanding the method behind the cooking.
During his demo, Yamaguchi explained what happens to meat as it cooks and how pre-cooking with a sous vide machine can yield the perfect fried egg.
Yamaguchi also stressed the importance of using local ingredients, which he practices in all of his restaurants and is a central theme of the Hawai'i Food & Wine Festival. In his demo, he used Kulana beef from the Big Island, Ho Farms tomatoes and greens from Nalo Farms.
