【Yoshinari Farms】Enjoy harvesting and tasting international-award-winning rice!

Date(s): September 14 (Sat.)

Ten’ei Village is located in the mountains in between the Nakadori and Aizu areas of Fukushima. The rice grown here by farmer Kuni’ichi Yoshinari took the gold prize (the highest award) at the International Contest on Rice Taste Evaluation. This edition of FoodCamp will offer a real, full-fledged farming experience by harvesting the Sasanishiki-species of rice from Yoshinari’s farm, followed by a lunch featuring newly-harvested rice of the year. The culinary experience will be delivered by chef Matsuzaki, who last year opened up restaurant cafe RaFand is his hometown of Tomioka. Skilled at using local ingredients and letting their inherent deliciousness shine without unnecessary additions, he has many local fans. Look forward to a world-class level of Washoku during this edition of FoodCamp!
