People always say that eating breakfast is really good for you. You can’t escape those cereal commercials, advertisements on the trains to work or even newspapers ads. Its is not rocket science to know that eating breakfast will make you feel better and perform well at school or work, but millions of American skip breakfast. They become tried very easily and by mid morning is grabbing a cup of coffee or drinking cans of soda fills with caffeine. It’s definitely for a healthy way to stay awake nor is it a alternatives to lose weight. Your body expects to refuel the required energy everyday starting with the most important meal, breakfast.
This past Saturday at the local community college, I was taught different ways to cook breakfast meals and I would like to share my experience with you. The class was in for a special treat as we had the community college’s chief instructor, the famous Chef Grant Sato, teach the class. In addition to being a Chef Instructor and the Operational Chef for KCC’S Culinary Arts Department, Chef Sato also assists the local Farm Bureau in developing recipes and programs to promote locally grown products in Hawaii.
Chef Grant Sato was raised in the food service environment as his grandparents own Myogaya Resturant and Ike’s Tavern in Honolulu. Chef Sato’s cooking philosophy is very simple—create flavorful dishes that highlight the ingredients and please the eyes, taste buds and soul.
It was definitely a pack house of more then 30 students. Each of them asking many questions and eagerly taking notes. By mid afternoon, we all learned different ways of making eggs from sunny side up, over easy, over medium, over well and scrambled. Besides eggs, we also learned about creating a pineapple upside down pancake, but you can also substitute the pineapple with other fruits. I couldn’t decided on my favorite dish because all of them were pretty good. It is either between the New Wave Eggs Benedict or French Toast.
