Flavour of Hanami: Authentic Japanese Cultural & Culinary Experience

Japan is my most favourite country, and I know many of us love Japan. Lucky for us, Isetan has opened its Japan Store at Lot 10, Kuala Lumpur last year and made us closer to Japanese culture, tradition, food and art.
Last Saturday, Flavour of Hanami exhibition was kicked off at THE CUBE/CUBE _1 (ISETAN the Japan Store Kuala Lumpur). This exhibition allows its guests to experience a live presentation and tasting by Chef Shogo Sasaki from the famed restaurant IZUU in Kyoto. Guests have also discovered the joyous occasion of Hanami (cherry blossom festival) through feature photographs and videos and had the chance to indulge in an exclusive dining experience.

Presented by Dai Nippon Printing Co.,Ltd, the Hanami themed activities were presented in three different zones at the venue. The Gallery introduced visitors to the original Hanami bento boxes made especially for this exhibition, giving them the chance to experience the tradition and craft of Japanese cuisine.

At the Theatre, food lovers watched a high definition short movie, which gave an enticing insight into the four Japanese seasons and the history and foundation of Kyoto food, which is considered the best of all Japanese cuisine. 

“We hope visitors will have the chance to discover for themselves, the essence of the Hanami, an ancient tradition of welcoming spring. While Japanese culture is popular among Malaysians, we want to give people a chance to discover the cultural aspects and culinary delicacies associated with the Hanami season,” said Ken Fukutake, General Manager of Media Content Planning Department, Dai Nippon Printing Co.

After an interesting tête-à-tête session, Chef Sasaki gave a live presentation of his two signature dishes - Chirasizushi (Scattered Topping Sushi) and Saba-sugatazushi (Whole Mackerel Lightly Matured Sushi). After the exciting demonstration, guests had the chance to indulge in Chef Sasaki’s authentic and delicious Kyoto-style dishes.

As an advocate of heart health, Nestlé Omega Plus is empowering Malaysians to lead longer, healthier lives by enabling them to take steps that can help improve their heart health, such as practicing healthy eating habits or getting into the routine of regular exercise. Additionally, regular consumption of Nestlé Omega Plus milk aids in cholesterol management as it contains Acticol® - plant sterols which help block bad cholesterol from entering the body.

“During festive seasons such as the Chinese New Year, we have the tendency of over-indulging in good food whilst celebrating with our loved ones without realising the consequences it can have on our overall heart health. This is why it is important to practice moderation during the festivities, not only by consuming cleaner and healthier foods, but also by complementing it with daily exercise, and two servings of Nestlé Omega Plus each day,” Cher Siew Wei, Corporate Wellness Marketing Manager of Nestlé Malaysia shared during the workshop.

The workshop showcased simple approaches of preparing healthful meals for the New Year, such as opting for grilling or steaming techniques instead of deep frying, or using more vegetables or protein-based ingredients, which can keep diners fuller for a longer period.
