What is Japanese Chefs Recipes …?

Japanese Chefs Recipes, created by the Association for the Advancement of the Japanese Culinary art (AAJ), is the world's first recipe portal website for professional chefs of Japanese cuisine.

For those aiming to produce authentic cuisine, add more value to their dishes, and provide an excellent dining experience.

Opportunities to learn about the techniques and culture of Japanese cuisine are limited; even for industry professionals, the majority of their skills are acquired through their daily work.

It is our hope that professionals trying to learn more about Japanese cuisine and improve their skills are able to quickly obtain the information they need through our website. We also hope to help inspire their imagination and inquisitiveness.

In addition, we aim to help chefs pursue authenticity, produce dishes of the highest quality, and provide the best possible dining experience to customers on a daily basis.

Since our establishment in 1930, AAJ has been striving to share and further develop Japanese culinary techniques—to further improve the skills of its members, add more value to the dishes they serve, and ultimately contribute to the overall dining experience. To facilitate the advancement of this goal, AAJ has created Japanese Chefs Recipes.
