Forming takoyaki: 2/2

Buy Add to Lightbox
One of the magical things about watching a good chef make takoyaki is how quickly and elegantly their hands move.  To form the takoyaki the batter is first cooked somewhat on the pan, and then the half-cooked batter is delicately (and quickly) rolled into a ball using chopsticks.  There are eight images total in this sequence (the other four should be before or after this one in the gallery); compare all the images of this sequence to see the process.  The last 7 of these frames were shot over only two seconds.<br />
