Overview of the Japanese Culinary Academy Certification
The Japanese Culinary Academy Certification assesses test takers’ knowledge and skills in Japanese culinary techniques, and certifies those who pass as having acquired “Japanese culinary techniques”. It is designed to evaluate acquisition of what professional chefs need to know, from basic knowledge of background information such as history, culture, and the geographical and climate-related characteristics of ingredients, to specialized knowledge and techniques such as how to grate, bake, and boil fish.
The certification is divided into two categories: the “Fundamental Certification” and the “Practical Certification” for advanced learners.
The Fundamental Certification covers basic knowledge, concepts, and culture, while the Practical Certification will cover specialized knowledge such as “dashi” and “fermented seasoning” as well as practical skills such as cutting techniques.
The Practical Certification will be offered for a fee.
The “Complete Japanese Cuisine” series is available at Amazon Japan, Amazon.com, and other retailers. If you have difficulty obtaining a copy, please contact the office of The Japanese Culinary Academy Certification Association.
