Two master chefs Kurachi Atsushi and Kim Nobuyuki from Japan hosted the 4th session of “GoChengdu Classes on World Culture”, organized by Gochengdu.cn and Isetan Department Store and held at Isetan on August 18.
Six families in Chengdu had a fun and meaningful Sunday, listening to the Japanese chefs who gave a lecture on the Japanese food culture, and then engaging themselves in making traditional Japanese delicacies.
Kurachi Atsushi: the Order to Order Sushi
As the most popular Japanese food, sushi is favored by people around the world. "It is very likely that Sushi came from China about 2,000 years ago!" said Kurachi Atsushi, owner of Gatten Sushi Bar at Isetan Department Store, as he explained on the origin of Sushi.
"And not many people really know the right way to order and eat sushi," he continued, explaining that the proper ordering should start with the lighter, less fatty fish and then proceed to the fattier fishes such as salmon or mackerel. Tuna, oily as it is, should be served in the end."
Kim Nobuyuki: Sukiyaki More Palatable When with Egg Fluid
"The tradition of Sukiyaki goes back to the ancient times when farmers cooked meat by heating it in iron spades. Salty and sweet in flavor, it is very different from Sichuan hotpot," Kim Nobuyuki explained.
A Japanese Korean, Kim Nobuyuki now lives in Chengdu and runs several Japanese food restaurants, including the Zhuzhufu Japanese Hotpot Restaurant on the on the 8th floor of Isetan, which served as the classroom of the session. Japanese food is gaining popularity in Chengdu.
When asked why people should dip Sukiyaki in raw egg fluid before having it, Kim explained that the egg fluid serves well in cooling down the hot Sukiyaki and making it more nutritious. "Actually, the egg fluid enhances the flavors," Kim Nobuyuki added, "Having Sukiyaki in the right way is very important."

In the following sessions, "GoChengdu Classes on World Culture" will invite more foreigners to share their ideas and experiences.
