The 9th World Cuisine Academic Meeting in HAKODATE, at which chefs from throughout Japan and beyond interact, will be held online for the first time, from April 19. Under normal circumstances, many chefs gather in Hakodate but last year the event was cancelled due to the impact of the Coronavirus. This year, prerecorded videos of interviews with chefs are due to be streamed online, and related parties are calling for as many people as possible to view the videos.

 The World Cuisine Academic Meeting began in 2009, and centers around Fukaya Koji, who runs a Spanish restaurant in Hakodate. It is not a food and cuisine PR event, but a forum in which chefs interact and speak of their philosophies, and has continued at a once a year pace.

 Last year’s event was cancelled due to the impact of the Coronavirus. Fukaya made the decision to hold this year’s event online “so the light of the meeting is not extinguished,” and the prerecorded images will be streamed via the online video sharing site, YouTube from the 19th.

 A total of 15 videos are scheduled, including conversations Fukaya has with popular chefs at restaurants in Akasaka in Tokyo, and Utsunomiya, and a “fish pride” symposium involving representatives from fresh fish shops in Hakodate. Fukaya will open the meeting with greetings via live streaming from 10:30 a.m. on the 19th.

 “You can learn about the chefs who have struggled and worried during the Coronavirus pandemic,” says Fukaya, adding “I want as many people as possible to watch it.” Viewing is free of charge, and the viewing site can be accessed via the meeting’s website (http://ryori-hakodate.jupiter.bindcloud.jp/index.html).
