My bento box, i cooked the tempura and i made the California Maki rolls. Team effort for the Japanese rice and teriyaki chicken.

2nd Avenue is partnered with the 25 Mushrooms Kitchen in Valle Verde for an exclusive media cooking class, I was excited to attend on this event not knowing that every media attendee will participate on the cooking activities. I love cooking but this time, we have to cook Japanese dishes which I think it is really complicated because I haven’t tried cooking any Japanese food at home. Of course, I ate Japanese cuisine from several hotels and restaurants. Hahaha. I love to eat them for the reason that it’s tasteful and umami.

Chef Lea Ariann “LA” Cedeno demoed the teriyaki sauce

We were taught how to cook Japanese rice, tempura, California maki rolls, and chicken teriyaki! At first, I thought it was so tedious and difficult, as Chef Lea Ariann “LA” Cedeno started her cooking demo things were came so easy to us. I learned how to debone chicken and tips to make the shrimp straight and long tempura. We replicated the four dishes Chef LA demoed before us. There were 3 media/bloggers on each working table with complete sets of mise en place, butane gas stove, and cooking utensils. The three of us; Martin Andrade, Erica Yu-b, and Me teamed together to prepare the four dishes and have it properly arrange in a bento box. We tasted everything and bravo…. All dishes we cooked are surprisingly delicious. So one of these days I have to try those at home.
