Sushi is more than just a simple Japanese dish pairing vinegared rice with raw fish – it is a science, a skill and an art form.
Though many claim to be adept in the craft, only a handful have succeeded in becoming world-renowned masters of sushi. Fortunately, the gift is not only limited to the Japanese, and the World Sushi Cup Championships has made it their mission to celebrate the expertise of sushi chefs from every corner of the world.
The World Sushi Cup Championships is intended to recognize the very best chefs in the world of sushi. During the event, contestants go head-to-head in a battle that judges skills, techniques, correct hygiene application, taste, appearance and creativity.
This year marks the sixth competition since it’s original launch back in 2016, and whilst the contest remains open to foreign talent in the industry, due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, only applicants located within Japan are able to apply for this year.
