future recipe contest
* Japan Sustainable Restaurant Association (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Shimodaya
Every year, in preparation for World Food Day on October 16th (Wednesday), Tsuyoshi (hereinafter referred to as SRA Japan) holds a food seminar for young chefs, culinary researchers, and students at cooking and confectionery hygienist training facilities. In order to raise awareness about sustainability, we have been holding a contest to come up with future recipes. This year, the 4th time, the theme of “FOOD” was “Sustainable Seafood” with the aim of popularizing sustainable marine resources.
MADE GOOD Future Recipe Contest 2024” will be held. *
[Background of the event]

Japan has become a gourmet powerhouse. This can be said to have been supported by the rich marine resources. However, as the global population increases, overfishing of fish and shellfish is spreading, and the sustainability of seafood is in crisis. Furthermore, rising seawater temperatures due to climate change are having a major impact on the fishing industry.

On the other hand, research is progressing that protecting and regenerating seaweed beds can help reduce carbon dioxide, which causes climate change, and efforts toward “sustainable seafood” that are considerate of the environment and society are increasing. It is attracting increasing attention.
Therefore, this contest is aimed at students, chefs, and cooking researchers at chefs and confectionery hygienist training facilities under the age of 30 who are asked to answer the question, “What kind of cuisine should we develop in order to protect ocean resources?” We are looking for recipes for the future as solutions to this question.

Opportunities to learn about the sustainability of ingredients are extremely limited in restaurants and schools. Therefore, starting in June 2024, in advance of the contest, in order to deepen the understanding of sustainable marine resources, open applicants will be invited to a five-part dialogue seminar between a chef with extensive knowledge of sustainability and a person involved in fisheries and fisheries. It will be held.
