Sushi Legend Masa is Secretly A Master Plate Designer | Immersed

51 Views · Published on Thu, 23 May 2019 · BANQUET & GOURMET

Welcome to IMMERSED, where we dive into the world of individuals so dedicated to their food-related passions and hobbies that one might even call them obsessed. In this episode, we discover that Masa Takayama, one of the world’s greatest sushi chefs, has been quietly designing the plates for his restaurant Tetsu for the past twenty years. Chef Masa has been doing this unbeknownst to many of his customers, and he writes his ideas on paper towel rolls, which he always carries with him. We sat down with Chef Masa at Tetsu in Tribeca to learn about how he draws inspiration from the food he cooks, and how he pictures it on the perfect plate. Then, we followed him to Masa Designs, his storage unit in Chelsea, to explore the hundreds of handmade plates, drinkware, and cutlery he houses there.
