About the Washoku World Challenge
This year, the Washoku World Challenge is going to be held online for the first time.
The "Washoku World Challenge" is a Japanese cuisine contest organized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan for non-Japanese chefs deeply interested in Japanese cuisine and who are eager to improve their skills and knowledge.
During the 7th contest last year, the regional qualifying tournaments were held in five cities worldwide, and the final tournament with 5 finalists was held in Tokyo.
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, serval policies have changed in order to ensure the safety of all participants.
The contest is going to be held online, without determining the First place. We have also expanded the scope for participation to include non-Japanese chefs of Japanese cuisine with less than two years of experience, chefs who are interested in Japanese food and food culture, and students who want to become chefs. We expect that holding the contest online will create new possibilities and opportunities!! Do not miss seizing this chance!
The theme of the contest is "My Japanese Cuisine".
We hope that you will all demonstrate your knowledge, skills, and passion for Japanese cuisine in your dishes and present them to the world!
We look forward to receiving your applications.
