Japanese Show Cooking as 2016 New Years Event.

Posted on April 08th, 2016

The Queaso Systems team members and their partners celebrated the start of 2016 in style. They were invited to join a magnificent Japanese show cooking event on Saturday 29th of January in restaurant Kanazawa Teppanyaki & Sushi in Merelbeke.

Teppanyaki (鉄板焼き) is a style of Japanese cuisine that uses an iron griddle (teppan) to cook food. The originator of the teppanyaki-style steakhouse is the Japanese restaurant chain Misono, which introduced the concept of cooking Western-influenced food on a teppan in Japan in 1945.

Everybody was expected for the pre-dinner drink at 19h00. A little later we all enjoyed both watching the skilled manoeuvres of the chefs preparing the food as well as the cuisine itself, which is somewhat more familiar than more traditional Japanese food.

A great variety of small dishes consisting of fish, meat, eggs, chicken, vegetables, noodles and rice, etc. were prepared before our eyes. Everything in a very fast pace: getting the ingredients, oiling the griddle, cooking the food, dividing it into small portions and serving it to all of us sitting around the place of action. Different drinks completed the exciting mail. Over and over again until we were all satisfied. For the die hards even a dessert and coffee or tea was served.

Shortly before midnight the eating, drinking and chatting party was over. After a lot of best wishes for 2016 once more we all went in different directions with the memory of a great evening amongst fellow workers and related partners.
