A Taste of HIROSHIMA Project

"A Taste of HIROSHIMA Project" will use the opportunity of the G7 Hiroshima Summit to disseminate the appeal of Hiroshima's diverse food both domestically and internationally.
This is a project to liven up the food scene in Hiroshima.

Hiroshima Prefecture is blessed with seasonal seafood and mountain produce, branded beef, branded pork from all over the country, meat such as chicken, and a variety of vegetables and citrus fruits.
There are many delicious local products.
In order to make each ingredient shine more and spread it more widely as "Hiroshima's food",
Not only producers, but also cooks and hosts,
I think it is essential that we all join hands and stand up.

Therefore, organizations and hotels that represent Hiroshima's food have united to launch the "A Taste of HIROSHIMA" consortium.
Based on the ideas born from talking with each other with wisdom and experience, Japanese food, Western food, Chinese food, okonomiyaki, sweets, etc.
We will continue to refine the “new Hiroshima food” of various genres.

In addition, we are soliciting ideas from citizens who know Hiroshima better than anyone else.
Challenge business operators (heroes) and mentors (heroes brains) who support them will work together to create a “new Hiroshima food”.
In addition, we are looking for restaurants and Souvenirs stores that want to entertain customers from Japan and overseas, including those in the prefecture.

Spreading the message, “Hiroshima is delicious!” to people inside and outside the prefecture, and to the world.
More than ever before, we will disseminate “Hiroshima food” that the citizens of the prefecture can be proud of, and will liven up “Hiroshima food” with all of Hiroshima.

Utilizing seasonal "Setouchi fish" and mountain vegetables from the prefecture,
Menu development that expresses the mountains and seas of Setouchi and Hiroshima

Around many islands in the Seto Inland Sea, there are still tidal flats and seaweed beds where many kinds of fish come to spawn.

In addition, the seasonal changes in water temperature and the currents between the islands make it possible to catch seasonal Setouchi fish throughout the year.
In addition, Hiroshima is blessed with the rich nature of the Chugoku Mountains, and there are plenty of mountain delicacies such as vegetables.

We would like to offer dishes that express the mountains and seas of Hiroshima using Japanese cooking techniques, using fish from Setouchi and vegetables from the prefecture.

Menu/product development that takes advantage of the diverse characteristics of Hiroshima Wagyu beef

In Hiroshima, there are branded beef such as "Hiba Beef", "Hiroshima Beef", "Motonari", and "Jinseki Beef".

Its taste is characterized by its delicate and rich flavor, smooth melt-in-your-mouth, deep richness and sweet umami.
Therefore, this time, we would like to take advantage of the various characteristics of Hiroshima Wagyu beef and use parts other than loin and fillet to refine the possibilities of new Hiroshima Wagyu beef.

In addition to menu development, we will also consider product development such as Souvenirs, and carry out activities to make Hiroshima Wagyu more familiar.

A variety of Chinese cuisine menus made with pork and vegetables from Hiroshima Prefecture

Pork is an important ingredient commonly used in Chinese cuisine, which has a wide variety of cuisines such as Sichuan, Cantonese, and Shanghai cuisine.
Hiroshima Prefecture is also a production area for more than 10 different brands of pigs, some of which are raised on the leftovers of vegetables produced in the prefecture and oyster shells.

In China, there is a saying that medicine and food are the same source, and in this initiative, I would like to create a dish that is good for the body by cooking a combination of branded pork and vegetables grown in the prefecture. I think.

Challenge to ingredients produced in the prefecture

There are more than 500 kinds of delicious ingredients in the prefecture, including Japanese mustard spinach, mizuna, Hiroshimana pickles, small sardines, and gansu.
Among them, small sardines are known as a Hiroshima specialty, but it seems that there are non-standard products when producing dried sardines.
The Hiroshima fish market is developing an initiative to process and effectively utilize the non-standard small sardines in Hiroshima.
As with squid tempura, we would like to take on the challenge of making small sardine tempura "koi tempura" a new specialty.

Also, the basic ingredients of okonomiyaki are cabbage, green onions, bean sprouts, pork, eggs, etc. We would like to take on the challenge of providing these ingredients as much as possible from Hiroshima Prefecture.
