Japanese Recipes by Mogu Japanese Restaurant’s Chef Seiji Kamura

When I found myself sitting in one of the classes the Maya Kitchen Culinary Arts Center offers, I cannot be more thrilled.  It was a cherry on top that it was Chef Seiji Kamura of Mogu Japanese Restaurant who is doing the cooking demonstration himself.

I was over the top as Chef Seiji Kamura shifted from one dish to another. The dishes he prepared may just be your usual Japanese recipes all right. But Chef Seiji Kamura sure whipped up 6 of the best tasting, albeit usual Japanese food I have tasted:

1. 4 Mushroom Kamameshi

5. Beef Yakiniku
6. Green Tea Jelly w/ Japanese Red Beans
