German Sega of Roka Akor on Working with Peter Kasperski and How He Defines a "Foodie"

German Sega Roka Akor 7299 North Scottsdale Road www.rokaakor.com

This is part one of our interview with German Sega, the newly appointed executive chef of Roka Akor in Scottsdale. Today, he dishes about the long road from culinary school to the restaurant's charcoal robata grill, with pit stops along the way at Old Town's Kazbar and Nobuo Fukuda's kitchen at Sea Saw. Don't forget to come back tomorrow when Sega explains the methodology behind extravagant, multi-course omakase dinners and how he makes fresh Japanese food happen in the middle of the desert.
