AUTEC was full of love as our sushi robots joined Chef Joseph Geiskopf and Chef Joji Inoue for the Skyview Valentines Dinner at the historic Yamashiro Hollywood for one night.
A little about Yamashiro’s history: The name Yamashiro translates as “Mountain Palace” in Japanese. In 1911, the Bernheimer brothers began construction of the hilltop mansion to house their priceless collection of Asian treasures. Hundreds of craftsmen were brought from the Orient to recreate the replica of a palace located in the “Yamashiro” province mountains near Kyoto, Japan. Yamashiro sits 250 feet above Hollywood Boulevard and was completed in 1914.
Guests experienced Japanese inspired dishes by chefs Geiskopf and Inoue who are shaping the Los Angeles culinary landscape through wellness education, environmental stewardship, seasonal cooking, community advocacy, food waste management, composting and local/sustainable farming.
The Skyview Valentines Dinner consisted of 13 delicately prepared courses. Sushi Robots 730 and 410 assisted Chef Joji Inoue with the Hamachi Nigiri with Ginger and Yuzu course.
We were honored to participate in such an intimate night for Angelinos.
