Chef Taka Kuroki trained in French cuisine and spent a decade as the sous chef at Le Poutriere, a prestigious French restaurant in Fukuoka, Japan where he specialized in classic lobster dishes.
Recently Chef Taka moved to Toronto to expand his culinary horizons, and while working in various Japanese establishments has been rewarding, he still misses the opportunity to indulge in his passion for traditional French cuisine.
The Depanneur is happy to welcome Chef Taka back into our kitchen for what is sure to be another fantastic meal of classic French flavours with his unique Japanese twist. Chef Taka will be assisted by Chef Shinji Yamaguchi of Gushi Japanese Street Food.
