Many years ago I was designing a new cinema and entertainment centre in Pescara, Italy. I was commissioned to come up with ideas for a food operator. My idea was for a restaurant themed around conveyor belt food produced by the best chefs in the area. In Pescara they have all that Adriatic fish, mini kebabs with lamb and more. Italy being that magnificent conservative culinary culture was not quite ready for Japan, but we took the idea of conveyor belt Sushi and put on Abruzzese classics as mini dishes.
DJ chefs as an idea was born there and at Cookie finally we have the chance to try it out in Scotland.
We will be bring you a series of professional chefs who will DJ at Cookie with their food and culinary ideas. It will give established and less well known chef alike the chance to show case their talents.
The first in the series is Makoto on Sunday the 13th. Scottish ingredients meet Japanese technique.
Makoto has been in Scotland for sometime. He has is a man of many talents, from journalism to translation, acting as a press agent for Nakamura while at Celtic. He has also been cooking and teaching Japanese culinary arts for private and larger groups at all levels.
