Event: Morimoto at the Skirball

The kind folks at the Skirball Cultural Center wanted me to pass on
some information to you, my kind and sweet and culturally-engaged
readers, so here it is!

(plus Evan Klieman is involved and she makes my lil heart all pitter patter when she talks)


Iron Chef Morimoto: The New Art Of Japanese

Sunday, September 30, 4:00 pm

Exclusive L.A. engagement! Since 1998, culinary master and
restaurateur Masaharu Morimoto has
combined his passion for cuisine, competition and performance as Iron Chef on
the wildly popular television shows of the same name. His extraordinary
creations are rooted in distinctive Japanese flavors and aromas, infused with
multicultural influences-from traditional Chinese spices to simple Italian
ingredients-and presented in a refined French style. Join Morimoto for a
demonstration of recipes from his new book, Morimoto:
The New Art of Japanese Cooking
, as well as a conversation with Evan Kleiman, host of KCRW’s "Good
Food" radio program. Tasting samples of prepared recipes and a book
signing will follow the program.

    I wanna go! Dang…two things this week that I don’t have money for. (David Crowder* Band’s new release of Remedy; now this…..that sucks!) I guess the Skirball is a little far of a drive on a Sunday afternoon.

    Thanks for the head’s up though!

    Cool, I actually bought my tix for this last week. All I have to do now is buy the cookbook. I wonder how many food bloggers are going to turn out for this.

    He seems to be doing a book tour at culinary schools! I saw him at Kendall College in Chicago at the beginning of September. I wrote about it on the blog.
