Win a trip to Japan at the Kikkoman Masters 2018



 The Kikkoman Masters 2018 is now open for entries.

The world’s leading soy sauce manufacturer is once again calling on professional chefs to take part in its highly-regarded competition.  Entrants are required to devise two courses using Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce and submit their recipes by Friday, 29th June 2018.

From a short list of entries, ten of the very best chefs will be invited to the Restaurant Show on Monday 1 October to take part in a 90-minute cook-off. One lucky contestant will be crowned Kikkoman Masters Champion 2018 and win a 7-day tour of Japan.

Bing-yu Lee, General Manager of Kikkoman UK, said: “Last year we had a huge response and the standard of entries was higher than ever.  The judges didn’t have an easy task selecting the overall winner.  But Gabriel Rechisan, Chef de Partie at Gidleigh Park was our worthy winner and will be heading off to Japan in March to experience its amazing culinary heritage and wonderful flavours.”

Kikkoman is popular with chefs for its authenticity - made using just four ingredients – soybeans, wheat, salt and water – and its natural brewing process which gives it a superior flavour.  Valued for adding the coveted umami taste to dishes, Kikkoman is now widely used as a multi-purpose seasoning in ethnic and western cooking.
