Japanese Cuisine has become a global trend, known for the use of a wide variety of seasonal ingredients, healthy, nutritious and well-balanced diet, and for intricate culinary methods to create a world of a mixture of food, art, nature and people(combining its food, art, nature and the people). It is registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage since 2015 as "Washoku".
However, compared with the increased attention and high demand for Japanese cuisine, the chances to taste authentic Japanese cuisine abroad are extremely limited. The level of Japanese cuisine available in other countries is generally kept low because ingredients and culinary methods are applied superficially, without fully conveying its spirit underneath. In fact, Washoku represents not only food in Japan but it is a concept that encompasses all aspects of life, respect, gratitude and thoughtfulness for others and the nature.
JCI (Japan Culinary Institute) is based on 35 years of culinary education experience of Florence Culinary Art School (Florence, Italy), a professional culinary school reputed for the highest quality of culinary training designed specially for foreign students.
Over 2000 international students from all over the world studied at the school aspiring to be professional Italian chefs. Another 5000 students took its Italian home cooking course for personal fulfillment.
With the experience and established quality that we have built over those years, we now proudly open the door in Japan to those who wish to explore the world of Japanese culinary arts.
We offer the highest-level education to students from all over the world aspiring to be professional Japanese chefs, through an intensive and comprehensive training on Japanese culinary techniques.
