Chef Rowan's Cooking Demo at Culinaria...Takoyaki...Yum Yum Fun!

Rowan had the distinct honor and pleasure of being asked to be a celebrity chef at the 2016 Culinaria Event at La Cantera Resort last weekend.  He partnered up with Jeff Bridges from Copa Wine Bar and they practiced making various types of sweet and savory
Takoyaki.  Takoyaki is a Japanese snack made from a type of pancake batter, typically with octopus in the fritters.  Jeff and Rowan made 3 savory versions using octopus, shrimp, and crawfish, and 2 sweet versions using nutella and caramel bits.  ALL of them garnished beautifully and were so delicious!
Friday night, they practiced...

Rowan arrived at La Cantera Resort Saturday morning and was welcomed with some pretty amazing swag!

He got to hang out with some family and friends...

and make some new friends too...

The venue was gorgeous, and it was such a beautiful day.

Then it was time to get to work!

Rowan's octopus jokes were a huge hit.  He had the guests laughing out loud!


Thank you Chef Jeff from Copa, Joe Carr from Joseph Carr Wines, and a huge thank you to Ginger with Culinaria for arranging all of this for Rowan and making one of his dreams come true!

Even after cooking in the hot sun for dozens of guests, and entertaining them with his octopus jokes, Rowan literally skipped out of the event...
Then, while waiting for the shuttle to come take us back to our car, he broke out in his happy dance...

It was such a fun day...

and Rowan was one very happy chef, calling it "another best day ever"!
