Washoku World Challenge

About the Washoku World Challenge


“The "WashokuWorld Challenge" is a Japanese cuisine competition organized by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan for non-Japanese chefs who are deeply interested in Japanese cuisine and who are eager to improve their knowledge and skills. This year, the WashokuWorld Challenge celebrates its landmark 10th year.

Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the competition has been held online for the past two years, but this year the Regional Qualifying Tournaments will be held in three cities (Paris, New York, and Singapore), as well as online.

The three winners of the Regional Qualifying Tournaments, plus two Online Qualifying Tournament winners, plus one runner-up from the Regional Qualifying Tournament (total of six contestants), will be invited to advance to the Final Tournament.

This year, the competition will be a hybrid event featuring Regional Qualifying Tournaments where contestants demonstrate their skills directly, and the Online Qualifying Tournament, in which contestants can participate from around the world.

The theme of the commemorable 10th WashokuWorld Challenge is “DASHI”, Japanese soup stock. The applicants are expected to demonstrate refined Japanese cuisine by fully utilizing "dashi", its key component, to the whole world.

We look forward to receiving many entries from around the globe!
