Mr. Sakata looked surprised when he heard of the announcement.

It was his 2nd challenge at this contest.

He told us that after practicing it many times, he could serve the delicious food which he believed at the actual contest. When he read the instruction about the assigned food, it was very difficult for him to imagine the outcome, as he hasn’t done “frying” work in his work place so far and there was no photo of it. He had been unnerved at first, but believing that it wasn’t impossible, if he checked each process carefully and followed them properly, he could challenge it calmly until the end.
