Our guest is Yael Peet who is a chef with impressive culinary training at top restaurants in New York City including Prune and Shuko. Until April 2019 she was the co-executive chef at Karasu, which is a cool Japanese-influenced izakaya-style restaurant in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Yael and her co-executive chef Elena Yamamoto joined us on Episode 158 to discuss her unique culinary approach and their forthcoming new restaurant Fury’s.

While getting ready for opening the new restaurant, Yael participated in a global culinary competition called the Washoku World Challenge and went to Japan last February. And she won the precious second prize.

In this episode, we will discuss Yael's experience at the competition, the new restaurant she and Elena are planning to open, how they are coping with the challenging circumstances surrounding the coronavirus and much, much more!!!
