In this class, Chef Simon Braz will show you how to create an authentic Okonomiyaki. A lover of Japanese culture and cuisine, he's learned that the food is complex and flavoursome but also simple and elegant. Okonomiyaki is an extremely popular Japanese street food from Osaka, comprised of shredded cabbage bound together in a wheat flour batter and cooked in a frying pan until golden. The word 'okonomi' means 'how you like' or 'what you like' and 'yaki' means 'cooked'. Chef Simon's version of this traditional savoury pancake will transport you to the streets of Osaka with a single bite.
