In the cooking show, Moco demonstrates easy-to-prepare and mouth-watering dishes along with viewers’ requests. Moco demonstrates the making of gourmet dishes in the comfort of your own home. Each recipe is personally crafted by him to fit in with viewers’ requests.His similarly-named cookbook ‘MOCO’s Kitchen’ also won the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards’ Japanese cooking category in 2013.
At the Fan Meet, Danny interviewed Moco in an intimate session and also facilitated the online video chat with fans, which saw some really funny moments as Danny gave a live commentary on the photos that Moco shared. Even Moco couldn’t control his laughter and slapped Danny on his back with an unintended translation of “tight buns”, which is unrelated to cooking.
Fans got to play fun games with Moco onstage and won attractive prizes including autographed kitchen apron and a limited-edition Mocomichi Hayami frying pan.
