I Think I'm Cooking Japanese

One hilarious scene in Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential is the description of an "Oriental" class at the Culinary Institute of America, with a Chinese man resentful about the Rape of Nanking as the instructor. Tasked with providing an overview of Asian cuisine, he dismisses sushi as "Japanese shit!" You'll get a better introduction to Japanese food during Basic International Cooking: Japan 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Central Market Plano, 320 Coit Road. Cost is $55. Call 469-241-8389.
Tue., Sept. 22, 6:30 p.m., 2009
