After moving to Italy in 2006, the Chef received the official title of Ambassador of Japanese Cuisine in Italy by MAFF Japan in 2019 (Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries). The term Washoku indicates the Japanese food and nutrition culture, including the social and spiritual aspects concerning the art of serving, the concept of respect, conviviality and hospitality. Hirohiko Shoda’s dishes are the result of experience and creativity, a fusion of memories, inspirations, travel, knowledge, a lot of study and hard work. A unique opportunity to get to know and understand the healthy and elegant cuisine that has conquered the West.
