Cookery Demonstration to be given by Michelin Star Chef – Yoshinori Ishii

Posted on May 5, 2015


We are delighted to announce that Yoshinori Ishii, Executive Head Chef at the Michelin starred Umu restaurant in London’s Mayfair, will be joining us on Saturday 13 June.  He will be demonstrating the traditional Japanese technique ikejime, which is a humane and specialist way of killing fish that preserves and enhances the quality of the flesh – essential when slicing fish for sashimi.   The demonstration is part of Chef Yoshi’s ‘Fish and Chip Revolution’ – his quest to encourage more British fishermen to adopt this technique, and thereby command a premium for their catch.  Visit http://www.bridportfoodfestival.co.uk/cookery-demonstrations/ for information and the times of all the cookery demonstration taking place.
