Good news sushi lovers, on 26-27th October the Global Sushi Academy will combine the best of two worlds: Japan’s sushi tradition and Norway’s fresh salmon widely enjoyed around the world.
The Norwegian Seafood Council is sponsoring a free two days seminar to professionals in the industry who wish to hone their existing skills from the Sushi master Hirotoshi Ogawa, Director General of the All Japan Institute, and become a certified “train the trainer” sushi chef.
The first day features more seminar based teaching, whereas the second day provides a more hands on practical workshop. Finally, once passing a written exam they will be officially certified by the World Sushi Skills Institute.
This is not a sushi making seminar. This sought after seminar opportunity offers professional sushi chefs, the chance to be certified with their own International Sushi Proficiency Certificate. The Japanese take sushi very seriously, and that is the reason they have created an organization to promote good sushi-making around the world, the Tokyo-based World Sushi Skills Institute (WSSI) funded by the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.
This certificate is the only internationally acknowledged certificate for sushi chefs in collaboration with the All Japan Sushi Association.
Chef Hirotoshi Ogawa,is the General Director of All Japan Sushi Association – Sushi Skills Institute, graduated from the reputed Tsuji Culinary School from Abeno Osaka and started his training in a famous Sushi restaurant in Tokyo. Since then he has worked in many well-known Sushi restaurants from Australia to Japan.
He set up his own restaurant in 2003 and finally sold out to take charge as Committee Member & Instructor for AISA Sushi Skill Institute. He has taught the art of Sushi in many countries from Thailand, India, Czech, Netherlands and Romania to Ukraine. He has also published a DVD on “Sushi – Sashimi Skill Improve Program”.
