Asahi Shimbun's Bon Marché Live Cooking
July 2020. Virtual
When Asahi Shimbun's (one of Japan's oldest and largest national newspapers) online editorial, “Bon Marche”, wanted to continue the enthusiasm following their successful “Bon Marche Online Tea Party”, Bon Marche, with the help of Empire, held its first online interactive cooking class with popular Japanese-South Korean chef Koh Kentetsu.
With around 20 participants all over Japan, Mr. Kentetsu showed everyone how to prepare one of his most memorable dishes, his Stairs to Heaven Stir-Fried Pork & Cabbage. Step-by-step, from start to finish, participants were able to interact with Mr. Kentetsu. While cooking, he spoke of his time in the Philippines where he learned about the dish and his personal goals as a chef.
Empire worked closely with Bon Marche to execute this virtual event including the online system planning, constructing, scripting and run of show.
