Tonight! Los Angeles is proving to be the best place in the world for Japanese cuisine to evolve. Our similar climate and natural resources have allowed its culture to take root, and the people and food unique to the region have allowed it to grow. Incredible dishes are being made at places like @tsubakila and @spagobh, and it’s made possible by people like fishmonger Seiichi Yokota and food writer/educator @sonokosakai, who are preserving tradition while embracing everything this beautiful corner of the world has to offer.
.
Episode 3 of The Migrant Kitchen streams for free and airs tonight on KCET at 8:00 PST. If you haven’t watched the first two installments, do yourself a favor and get caught up. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. Your stomach will sing beautiful, longing pangs. Link is in the bio :)

Sappy, long-winded notes below. Travelers beware. #migrantkitchen #framez

This Wednesday! @tsubakila is bringing the izakaya to Echo Park, and they’re embracing the concept of omotenashi. Thoughtfulness, care, and generosity abound in Japanese culture, and we Angelenos could do with a bit more of that, no? Link in the bio :)

This Wednesday! Fishmonger Seiichi Yokota shows us ikejime, a technique that yields the highest quality fish a chef (like @tetsuyahagi of @spagobh) can serve.

Tonight! Episode 2 of The Migrant Kitchen is about a family that made the Indian restaurant you aren’t expecting.

Well, I didn’t even shoot this stuff. That would be @austinstraub (+coloring by @danielstraub). But I love it, and I couldn’t help but share some #framez. I had the great pleasure of working with director @timaldengrant in the edit bay as we strung together heaps of archival video (any documentarian’s dream) and labored over the progression of this story. So incredibly rewarding.
.
Although I was barely on set for this production, I feel like I know the @badmaashla family so well. Their story legitimately gets me a little misty-eyed, and I know you’ll enjoy it, too. Link’s in the bio :)

Episode One #framez (part 2)

Trying to do better about the #framez. These are from the season 2 premiere of The Migrant Kitchen, which you can stream from the link in my bio. Episode one directed by @antonio, shot by me, colored by @danielstraub.
