All Japan Chefs Association (AJCA) celebrated
the International Chefs Day 2018 on 2nd October 2018 with” the theme
of Healthy Foods for Growing up” together with 54 sixth grade students of
Fujimi Elementary School in Tokyo and 12 chefs of AJCA members including President Toshi and Vice
President Kihachi Kumagai.
After the cooking demonstration done by
Chef Kumagai, children washed hands first and started to cook 3 dishes which
were Cold Japanese Pear Soup, Japanese Traditional Pork Cutlet Sandwich and Smoked
Crabmeat and Healthy Vegetables Salad California Style.
Children dressed in chef’s hat and apron,
presented by Nesle Professional, were preparing delicious foods under chef’s
professional instruction. They were interested in how to use knife safely, to
sieve soup properly and so on. Chefs were happy to see that they worked hard, actively
and eagerly more than they expected.
Dishes were completed on schedule, then
they enjoyed their foods at the table covered with white table cloth in good
eating manner together with chefs.
It was a very exciting and fun for not only
children but also for chefs.
