Japanese chef Yoshihiro Narisawa is internationally known for his dedication to sustainability and representing the natural environment in his dishes by using indigenous Japanese ingredients. The close relationship Narisawa has with his own territory is captured in Satoyama.
In Japanese, “sato” means "village" and “yama” means "hill” or “mountain,” and the phrase refers to humans living in harmony with the environment. Narisawa’s interpretation of satoyama is expressed through dishes created in the kitchen of his eponymous restaurant, in partnership with local farmers and suppliers.
Los Angeles Times Food Bowl is an annual, month long festival celebrating the city’s dynamic food scene. Spanning the entire month of May, Food Bowl features many of the chefs and restaurants that have helped put Los Angeles on the map as a premier dining destination alongside world-renowned chefs in rare local appearances at hundreds of extraordinary events.
Satoyama Photography Exhibition is presented in association with Japan House Los Angeles, Union Station and LA Times Food Bowl
