Ever watch the “local” news in Los Angeles and feel a bit lost? From West Hills to Westwood, from Palmdale to Lawndale — LA is a series of isolated villages ruthlessly contained and constrained by traffic as surely as it is a major metropolis.
To celebrate Chef Makoto’s first lead performance on The Food Network’s Iron Chef America, Sashi welcomed Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, Top Chef champion Michael Voltaggio, Ironnori’s Noriyuki Sugie and Patina’s Waylynn Lucas for a once in a lifetime culinary experience. Guests enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, a six-course tasting menu, and a special screening of Chef Makoto’s episode. Photography by Aaron Bush, aaronbush.com.
