Takashi Saito (not to be confused with the baseball player), top apprentice of Chen Kenmin, and coach of Chen Kenichi. Chen beat his tutor in a prawn battle. Saito recreated Kenmin’s original prawns in chili sauce, while Kenichi created his father’s modern version of the dish (Canapé Style with ketchup).
He was also remarkable for his frequent tasting of food, frequently dipping his ladle into steaming concoctions for sampling, only to place the same ladle back in the food. The commentators to the show referred to this practice in humor as Chen’s ‘eating.’
Over the course of the series, Sakai became famous for being a ladies man; his smooth personality and friendly attitude certainly helped in this regard. His television trademark is a red French chef’s costume; he rises into Kitchen Stadium holding a pear in his hand. He is often described as the “Delacroix of French cuisine” because of the presentation of his dishes.
Can’t I fucking sleep?
