Teppanyaki is a type of Japanese cuisine that uses an iron griddle to cook food. The word teppanyaki is derived from teppan, which means iron plate, and yaki, which means grilled. In North America, it is also known by the name of hibachi. In Japan the preparation of food is an art form and teppanyaki is no exception. During its 200 years history, this form of tabletop cooking has developed into a highly refined and beautiful form of expression, characterized by an intricate combination of presentation and knife skills
