Michelin-starred Chef David Schlosser describes his Japanese culinary odyssey that began training under Masa Takayama at the famed Ginza Sushi-ko in 2002 (the benchmark) then working as the chef to the US Ambassador to Japan. This led to training at Kikunoi and Kitcho two of the most important restaurants in Kyoto. He opened the first Texas-style Barbecue restaurant in Tokyo. This training culminated with his establishment in Los Angeles of Shibumi, called the "future of Japanese dining in America." Chef Schlosser will also speak about his cuisine and his interest in reviving early modern (1600-1868) recipes as well as his 2019 appointment as a "Goodwill Ambassador to Promote Japanese Cuisine" by the Japanese government.
