Discover the Balance of Japanese Cuisine

Japan's Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) and Aramark Corporation—one of the largest food service providers in the U.S.—are teaming up to present Ichijiu-Sansai Week in the dining hall of Washington D.C.'s Georgetown University from February 10 to 16, 2016.

The chef at the head of the menu's creation is Japanese Master Chef Isao Yamada of the Michelin-starred Brushstroke restaurant in New York.

The event will also showcase the appeal of other Japanese foods, and students can taste freshly made dishes based on the concept of ichiju-sansai (one soup, three dishes), which is a staple of the Japanese diet due to its excellent nutritional balance and its role in the custom of healthy eating.
