In collaboration with the Macy’s Culinary Council, the award-winning celebrity Chef Takashi Yagihashi is presenting a complimentary live cooking demo on Saturday, July 29th, 2017 (1pm at Macy’s West Valley Fair in Santa Clara, California).
Specializing in French and Asian fusion cuisine, Chef Takashi has been seen at premiere food & wine festivals around the country, including Pebble Beach Food & Wine. Over his 25-year career as a professional chef, Chef Takashi has developed a unique style of cooking, combining French, Japanese, and American influences.
About Chef Takashi Yagihashi
Chef Takashi has received the honor of America’s ten “Best New Chefs” by Food & Wine, and the James Beard Foundation selected him as “Best Chef: Midwest”.
Chef Takashi has opened Takashi, an award-winning restaurant in the Midwest which was named “Best New Restaurant” by Chicago Magazine and one of ten “Best New Restaurants of the Year” by Esquire. He also opened Noodles by Takashi Yagihashi, which was named one of the “Five Best Noodle Shops in America” by Bon Appetit; which later turned into a cookbook titled Takashi’s Noodles.
In 2012, Yagihashi competed in the fourth season of Top Chef Masters, participating in seven rounds of competition and ultimately winning the coveted “Fan Favorite” award.
Chef Takashi Makes Cooking Fun
As a believer in the mantra, “do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life“, Chef Takashi takes a joyful approach to the art of cooking.
His enthusiasm for whipping up new and unique recipes, mixed with his affable and humorous personality, create a winning combination that both entertains and educates audiences. Takashi’s playful jokes, fun personal stories, and insightful tips make for a truly delightful afternoon. For these reasons, watching a live cooking demo by Chef Takashi is always guaranteed to be amusing.
We were fortunate to be able to interview Chef Takashi at last year’s cooking demo in San Francisco (as shown below). In addition, his entertaining cooking demo (and delicious food) were the highlight of the day. That’s why we’re excited to be attending his cooking demo in Santa Clara this year.
