Hot off the heels of a recent trip to Japan this spring, Chef Andrea and her team are excited to welcome both chefs and offer visitors a one-of-a-kind culinary experience. Sommelier Jesse Walters will be working together with Mr. Kawamura to create bespoke sake and natural wine pairings for the dinner.
Talking of their time in Japan, Chef Andrea states: “It was our first night in Tokyo and we happened upon Kantera. We had the most amazing dining experience, the yuba and uni were transcendent, and the chilled soba noodles in sesame were like nothing we had ever tasted. Mr. Kawamura is a natural wine enthusiast and had some incredible locally made wines for us to try. Simply put, Kantera was one of the best dining experiences we had in the country.”
