Kaiseki is a traditional Japanese multi-course meal that evolved from early practices of offering foods to the gods. There are many rules governing Kaiseki, which are used to highlight five different tastes, colors, and cooking techniques. It is said that kaiseki is a meal where you are one with nature, as the food served often depends on what is freshest and in season.
Join us for an evening with Embassy chef Ryo Iizawa, as he presents the history and importance of kaiseki in Japanese culture, demonstrates kaiseki techniques, and lets you taste a few of his dishes!
