This past summer the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) partnered with the Oishii Nippon Project to help shine the light on our delicious vegetables. The result is a number of new recipes that explore the multitude of flavors these vegetables can bring to a plate.

The Oishii Nippon Project

The Oishii Nippon Project was launched by Tokita to bring these uniquely developed and delicious vegetable staples of Japan’s Washoku culture to countries around the world, offering a holistic Seed to Table approach in the cultivation, preparation, and enjoyment of these healthy vegetables. Meet the farmers, enrich your palate, grow at home, and connect to your food – from seed to table.
