Description

CHEF LAB, from James Beard Award-winning producer-director-storyteller Liza de Guia (foodcurated.com), is a new digital documentary food series that covers where a chef's culture, influence and background meets the plate! The owners of Shalom Japan share an extremely unique perspective on dining. The husband, Aaron Israel, is Jewish, and the wife, Sawako Ochi, is Japanese. They love both cuisines, so they decided to mash Japanese together with Jewish, and the results have been met with rave reviews. With such off-the-wall items as the lox and rice bowl and matzah ball ramen(!), this couple is taking fusion dining to the next level. An HLN Original Series Created by: Liza de Guia Produced by: Mike Byhoff and Katie Isaacson
