And So It All Began -
- Thai Undergraduate Student
- Amsterdam East (Science Park, of all places)
- Supper Club with technical focus on sushi
"Unlikely" is the first word that comes to mind of most of the diners.
It is ambiguous even to me as to how it all started.
Was it the countless Japanese documentaries throughout my childhood?
Was it the desire not to dine well for pleasure's sake but to study the discourse in the culinary craft?
Was it my own Omakase experiences that I have been fortunate enough to have participated?
To distil for essential details, suffice to say that my motive is to create opportunities where interactive experiences become a sum greater than its components; I aim to run a supper club where interpersonal barriers are broken and diners can have an experience beyond the social, educational, and culinary value of the dinner. To the best of my abilities, I can serve pleasing courses and offer parallel explanations which may enlighten diners to the wider context of Japanese culinary and philosophical approach. However, diners are still served by a humanities major undergraduate student in an improbable setting of a student dorm where I am very essentially a novice in this craft. I can claim that every dinner that I serve has a certain value, a personal value, that extend beyond a diner-to-chef professional interaction. My liberty to serve any course I want, in any way that I want means that I am without guidance throughout this pursuit - as diners are enablers of my education in project, I place more value on my guests far beyond than their customary status.
