Chef Masaharu Morimoto has gained an artsy reputation in the world of cooking through his unique style of presenting food and through the combination of flavor and techniques of both Japanese and western cooking styles.  Morimoto is a Japanese chef, known for his debut on the Japanese television series Iron Chef and later, Iron Chef America: Battle of the Masters where he went up against world renowned chefs Mario Batali, Wolfgang Puck, and Hiroyuki Sakai.  Many of Masaharu’s exclusive food presentation designs are inspired by his travel from his home in Hiroshima to the United States when he set out to begin his career in New York City.

In 2007 his first cookbook, Morimoto: The New Art of Japanese Cooking, was published, winning two IACP awards and a James Beard Foundation Award nomination. Morimoto is the executive chef at several of his own restaurants including, Morimoto Philadelphia, Morimoto New York, Wasabi by Morimoto in Mumbai and New Delhi, and Morimoto Sushi Bar in Boca Raton, Florida.  In July of 2010, he opened his first West Coast restaurant, Morimoto Napa, on downtown Napa’s new riverfront development.  Recently, in 2012, Morimoto opened his second New York restaurant, the Tribeca Canvas.
