We celebrated the tenth anniversary of The Gohan Society with a spectacular gala at Sony Club on June 4, 2015. It was a lovely evening where we presented Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and Chef David Bouley with the Washoku Ambassador Awards, introduced our four U.S.-Japan Culinary Exchange Scholarship recipients, and commemorated the designation of WASHOKU to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list.

Thanks to Chef Michael Romano, our Dinner Chairman, and our Dinner Vice Chairperson Ms. Hiroko Onoyama, we were able to share this event with restaurateurs, chefs, and foodies. We were fortunate to have Tim and Nina Zagat as our keynote speakers, and what an honor it was to have UN Ambassador Motohide Yoshikawa present Chefs Nobu and Bouley with their awards.
