On February 9, 2017, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries held a cooking class called “A Cooking Class for Japanese Cuisine / Japanese Food Culture” at Kasetsart University in Bangkok, Thailand.
The class was led by Takuji Takahashi, the third owner of a Kyoto cuisine restaurant called KINOBU and Japanese Cuisine Goodwill Ambassador (appointed in February, 2016), who delivered the beauty of Japan-made food ingredients through his cooking performance in the class using wagyu beef, yellowtail fish, scallops, etc. (he cooked the dishes again). After the class, the participants were allowed to relish the dishes made by Takahashi. There was also a workshop on Japanese tea.
The participants were enthusiastically taking notes and listening to the lecturer, while they enjoyed dishes that are cooked with the focus on enhancing the original flavors of ingredients.
The event highlighted the future possibility of Japanese cuisines in Thailand.
