MASAHIRO KURISU(Tankuma Kitamise)
Chef Kurisu was born in Kyoto in 1957. He is the third Master of Tankuma Kitamise. Tankuma restaurant near Takase River was opened in 1928 by his grandfather Kumasaburo Kurisu and has been loved by many, including Junichiro Tanizaki and Count Isamu Yoshii, Japanese literary celebrities. After a degree course, Chef Kurisu trained under his father and the second Master Shoichi Kurisu and became part of the Tankuma establishment in 1982 and eventually succeeded his father in 1988. Kurisu has inherited the talent, skill and sense of hospitality established by the original Tankuma. He relentlessly pursues the best ingredients and uses them to create dishes that represent the pleasures of each season. Chef Kurisu is always keen to learn new techniques and develop new talents. He devotes his time to the future development of Kyoto cuisine through educational events. Kurisu also serves as the Deputy President of Japan Culinary Academy.
YASUHIRO SASAJIMA(IL GHIOTTONE)
Chef Sasajima was born in Osaka in 1964. After finishing school, he trained at various restaurants including La Tour in Osaka, before moving to Rome, Italy in 1988. On his return home, he worked as a chef at La Vita and other Italian restaurants, an experience that inspired him to develop the concept of "Italian cuisine from Kyoto". This led to the opening of Il Ghiottone in Higashiyama, Kyoto in 2002. The exterior of the restaurant is in the traditional Kyoto town house style but the interior design is modern, full of light. Sasajima serves traditional Italian dishes using local Kyoto ingredients, producing unique and creative dishes. In Tokyo, Sasajima opened his second restaurant Il Ghiottone Marunouchi in 2005. Chef Sasajima was the first Japanaese chef of Italian cuisine to attend the 2007 Identità Golose in Milan, an annual international culinary summit. Sasajima designed the Italian food menu for Japan Day at Expo Milano 2015.
