To all of you who inspire to be a top Sushi chef,
Japanese sushi was born about 200 years ago, a time that despite there was neither refrigerator nor ice existed, a food culture of safe cooking of raw food was born, evolved and inherited to this present day. Today, Sushi has spread to all over the world, became very popular and even fused into some countries’ local food culture.
“WORLD SUSHI CUP®” is not just a sushi tournament, but it consists of a course of learning, training, examination, and then followed by the Japanese traditional Edo-mae sushi competition where it is based on Japanese traditional food culture and hygienic cooking method of raw food. Only chefs who pass for this qualifying round are able to advance to the final which is the creative sushi competition where they will be further tested on their own unique creativity.
“WORLD SUSHI CUP® JAPAN 2017” as a tournament to establish the status of overseas sushi chefs is therefore calling Sushi chefs from around the world to this important event in Japan.
We sincerely look forward to all participation of all active Japanese chefs and Sushi chefs around the world.
