Teppanyaki means, quite literally, broiled on a steel grill. Which is the definition of teppanyaki-style cooking in its most simple form.
Some believe the tradition began over 200 years ago when families would prepare food together on small grills. Others believe it began in the early 1900s with chefs introducing the style, along with their intricate knife skills, to diners.
Regardless of which story is true, teppanyaki has evolved greatly over the last hundred years, moving from food that was simply “broiled on a steel grill or plate” to something of an art form.
This art form is now introduced to Guyana by the Ramada Georgetown Princess Hotel.
