On Wednesday, May 8th, JASCers gathered in New York City for a fundraising event. Our blog about the event is forthcoming, but one of our revered guests beat us to it.
Ms. Hiroko Shimbo-a trained chef, blogger, and food authority-has written three cookbooks and helped several restaurateurs as a consultant. You can read more about her esteemed career on her website.
Hiroko attended the JASC event on Wednesday, and reflected about the experience on her blog. You can read the entry here: http://www.hirokoskitchen.com/blog/2013/05/the-japan-america-student-conference-jasc/
She also was generous enough to donate signed copies of her cookbooks for our silent auction. More information about the auction is also forthcoming.
