Technical Training Series: Modern Japanese Tapas

Matt Abregel

Join Chef Matt Abregel from the Yardbird in Hong Kong for an amazing class on Modern Japanese Tapas creation.

Matt has always had a passion for two things: food and art. Rather than cultivating these interests through formal education, Matt was consistently drawn to the path of hands on experience. This path took Matt on travels throughout Asia where he was able to explore different food cultures. While traveling in Japan, he fell in love with the interplay of food, art and craftsmanship. With his father and grandfather both working as carpenters, Matt has always understood that the quality of material is as important as the manner in which that material is treated. This is the underlying philosophy of Japanese cuisine and the reason why Matt fell in love with it.

This class will focus on modern Japanese techniques to create small “tapas” size dishes made famous by Matt Chef/Owner at the Yardbird gastropub in Hong Kong. Chef Matt will go over what he considers to be the most important Japanese cooking techniques and how to apply them in a modern kitchen, focusing on Japanese ingredients with his unique twist.
