Gaijin Cookbook Signing Event with Ivan and Chris
October 19, 2019
We hosted a launch event of Gaijin Cookbook, a new cookbook by a acclaimed chef, Ivan Orkin, and founder of Lucky Peach and author, Chris Ying on September 30 at our shop.
The book is a collection that celebrates everyday Japanese home cooking with insights on being a foreigner and father.
IVAN ORKIN is the author of Ivan Ramen and a star of Chef’s Table and Mind of a Chef. He owns Ivan Ramen and Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop in NYC, where the food is “so good it makes
your eyes explode” (Eater).
CHRIS YING is the co-founder of Lucky Peach, the former publisher of McSweeney’s, and the author and editor of numerous titles including Ivan Ramen, the Mission Chinese Food Cookbook, and You and I Eat the Same. He lives in San Francisco,
Fun and intimate event started with a talk session by Ivan and Chris.
The audience was really engaged in the very interesting stories by them, and they also enjoyed fun Q & A session, followed by donabe cooking demonstration by them.
Ivan and Chris signed each copy of their book for every guest. Meanwhile, we served my homemade donabe dishes.
It was our great pleasure to host the event and meet Ivan and Chris, specially talented chefs! Everybody had a wonderful time!
Happy donabe life.
