Behind the scenes of this event that greatly delighted gastronomy fans,7There was a stylish gesture by a human chef. About young chefs mainly in Kyushu40名を1He was invited to the kitchen as a day assistant and was able to demonstrate the world-class skills he had cultivated over the years.

 

For example, ``Denkushiflori'' Shimizu has created a shocking gastronomic beef using primitive cooking methods, using only the bare minimum tools that have been used since primitive times: stones, fire, and the five human senses. We have the technical ability to compete in the world without having a kitchen with the equipment.

 

Based on the motif of ``persimmon masu'', which is a common side dish in persimmon-producing areas, where persimmons are mixed with root vegetables such as daikon and turnips, we have created a gastronomy that will surprise everyone while keeping the basic ingredients. From the sublimated ``Villa Aida'', Kobayashi reveals the essence of the world trend of reconstructing the classics.

 

It must have had an immeasurable effect on how much the enthusiastic young people who volunteered to attend were inspired by the cutting-edge cuisine of the world-class star chefs they admired.
