SHOJI MORITA chose Bambuszliget
master chef and tutor
He has honed his skills to perfection at the traditional Japanese restaurant Sushimasa (Kudanshita, Japan - http://www.sushimasa-t.com/). This sushi bar, established in 1861, has mentored the most renowned sushi chefs in the world. And Morita-san rose to the position of deputy chef here.
He spent 2 years at the restaurant. Now his proper title is “sushi master”, as he has also been working as a tutor in the arts of sushi since 2002, giving classes on a weekly basis.
Morita-san also has a skill that is considered outstanding even in Japan.
Morita-san also has a skill that is considered outstanding even in Japan. He has a certificate in preparing the fugu, or pufferfish.
This species of fish secretes and stores all the toxic materials it consumes in its liver, which makes this organ highly poisonous. If prepared by an untrained, uncertified person, this dish may well turn out to be our last, since these toxins can swiftly kill those who consume them.
Morita-san not only has this certification, he has also trained other fugu-masters. An expert with this skillset is rare not only in Hungary, but in all of Europe. He is also a return guest on Japanese television as a sushi expert.
Morita-san chose Bambuszliget, since he found our admiration of Japanese traditions welcoming.
