Chef Hirotoshi Ogawa teaches at the All Japan Sushi Association and was conducting a Sushi workshop at the International Chef's Conference, IFCA 2015.
His face shone with sweat as he surgically sliced through a hunk of tuna, with hardly a glance at it. He was streaming out every step in great detail in a flurry of Japanese, made comprehensible by his adept translator Ruchi Naithani Chinoy. The twinkle in his eyes, when he spoke about Sushi immediately reminded me of Jiro-san of the legendary 3-Michelin starred Jiro’s. I, sadly, have only laid eyes upon Jiro and his masterful creations in the Essential-watch-for-every-Sushi-lover movie, Jiro Dreams of Sushi
Note: I was covering the 6th International Chef's Conference for IFCA as a part of the social media team. I was invited after winning a food blogging contest organized by them. All my expenses during the conference, unless otherwise mentioned, were borne by IFCA. Stay tuned for more memoirs from the event.
