Bincho Tanaka: Mastering the Art of Yakitori

Bincho Tanaka: Mastering the Art of Yakitori

James Zhang |

If you're a fan of Japanese cuisine, then you've probably heard of yakitori – a popular dish made of skewered chicken grilled over charcoal. And if you're a true yakitori enthusiast, then you've likely heard of Bincho Tanaka – a renowned yakitori specialist based in the Byron Bay area of Australia.


With over 30 years of experience in the culinary arts, Bincho Tanaka has gained a reputation as one of the best yakitori chefs in the world. He's known for his use of binchotan charcoal, a high-quality Japanese charcoal made from oak wood that burns hotter and longer than regular charcoal, giving the chicken a unique smoky and slightly sweet flavor.

Now, Tanaka is taking his expertise to the next level with a new online course aimed at spreading the culture of yakitori. In this course, participants can learn from Tanaka about the different cuts of chicken, the proper techniques for grilling over binchotan charcoal, and the various seasonings and sauces used in yakitori. With Tanaka's guidance, students can master the art of yakitori and bring the flavors of Japan to their own homes.
