Road to be a new global boom
~ What Japanese chefs should be aware of~

Author: Yokohama

Back to the traditional “Shojin” way of cooking to offer vegan food.

Japanese chefs should be aware that they can offer vegan cuisine using their traditional way of cooking, called “Shojin”. Shojin was brought into Japan from China along with the introduction of Buddhism. For more than a thousand years, it has been a common traditional Japanese way of cooking plant-based meals until the mid 1860S’.

Now, in the 21st century, Japanese chefs are starting to recreate plant-based cuisine in the “Shojin” way. This has the potential to become a new global boom!
