ASMI Japan will conduct four cooking classes taught by cooking specialist Keita Inoue, who is very familiar with Alaska seafood. Keita has developed many Alaska seafood recipes, including Alaska seafood burgers. The first two lessons will take place in Osaka on November 18 and 19, and the next 2 lessons will be held in Sapporo, Hokkaido on December 18 and 19. ASMI Japan plans for Keita to develop “easy-to-prepare” recipes using Alaska sockeye salmon, Pacific cod, Alaska Pollock roe, herring roe and so forth. ASMI Japan will support this opportunity by providing Alaska seafood samples, as well as brochures/leaflets about Alaska seafood for the students to take home and read. Keita will develop original recipes and explain to the students about the natural, sustainable, high quality and delicious aspects of Alaska seafood.
