    At age 10, Terada learned the basics of sushi from his father and then went on to attend RKC Chef's School in Kochi, Japan from 1987-1989. He soon earned a nickname for his fast knife, attention to detail, divine presentation and ability to create new dishes and accents based on traditional Japanese cuisine. After graduating RKC Chef School, he was called to serve under Master Chef Kondo at Yuzuan restaurant in Kochi, Japan from 1989-1992. Mr. Kondo is the master of Kansai style cooking, considered to be the high-end of Japanese cuisine. Terada earned the title Master Sushi Chef by becoming the standing head sushi chef & can serve Fugu (Japan Licensed) to the public.

                                11:27 Is this channel all of a sudden going to make a game of filetting fish whilst it still is alive??
                                And this for the views?!
                                I have respected this channel always, but this is going to far.
                                You dont stand there laughing whilst an animal is suffering unnecessay.
                                Please join me all in UNSUBSCIBING to show you dont agree with this cruelty!

                                                Cooking it kills the parasites, and bacteria. That's one of the reasons people cook meat.

                                                                                            But damn you guys have made me wanna try again.... if it's cooked like yours...

That’s because we English make the ell jellied if we ate it like normal people it would taste good don’t know what cunt came up with the jellied part but believe me when I say anything is better then jellied ell
