To carry out practical activities generous in cooperation with government in order to inherit the food culture unique Kanazawa has further.
One of the sect of Buddhism in the "Zen" and then recite the "Gokan no ge"before the meal, but there is a sentence "weigh the coming treatment of his measure the success of some" in the first sentence . And that I think the feelings of cook to tackle ｇcooking seriously while imagining a scene that could ingredients and know to know the origin of the ingredients before you get the food, or those where it was caught, the way of cooking it, "I will not teach how to hold the mind of the "side get. Founder of Eiheiji "Dogen" was noted in the "Tenzo lesson", mind you make polite I thought not forget the joy of entertaining and joy to make, the position of the other party, and that, make a big heart deeply Discard the trapped and "three There is a teaching of the mind ". There are taught that, make a big heart deeply abandoned the "three hearts". Our "food education" is a project that focuses on where you grow a person who can sympathize daily called "get a life".
And eating what was harvested in and around engaged in life original thing daily meals should was a "local production for local consumption", but all over the country, so that it will be able to get the same food distribution is flourishing as now When it comes to, local produce even whether the food that is harvested when in season and what was none, you no longer know. So we worked by the public system or "Kanazawa food education Karuta" and "breakfast menu Competition" with the goal to create a tool that was the theme of eating habits of Kanazawa First, to get back at the day-to-day.
Stated in Karuta, it is also about 4000 points of submissions in the public offering of Yomifuda, I was able to know ask the height of the interest in the food of the citizens.
In that it is covered by eating out opportunity of cooking at home has worn many, it is possible that food culture that can not be made easily at home, such as "cuisine of sunny" also touch easily.
There was an incident that pesticide contamination of rice industry and that eight years ago, has been grown in areas of Japan back from now is diverted to edible. It was the incident that you can sell to Koji machining be mixed contamination of rice one about 10% in edible rice, that sold as cracker of their products, food safety and security has been threatened. People who were trusted to protect the lives of consumers is the moral of the food business operators did not fully hide the anger and surprise.Compliance is also important, but that you wear the power to go correctly selected at the discretion of the food of their own is also an important point of view of this project. Furthermore, in the Great East Japan Earthquake Japan during experienced in 2011, measures of food distribution and includes a threat of nature has been highlighted. Both are issues related to the security of the food, but it is what now, skills of people who are engaged in the life is required.
I think in recent years, observation force in the life of the deprived in, had been cultivated in daily life from many natural living environment and have been missing. For example, what may probably have been cultivated in education and learn the name of the vegetables as knowledge in a facility that has been artificially created?We have a sense of mission and sense of urgency. The definition of Slow Food, and listen to protect the producers who give us protect the cuisine and traditional ingredients, the ingredients of good quality, and are used in point of view, but if grasped in a broad sense, at home from childhood it Would not than may be said with nostalgic memories of taste and cuisine uplifting to eat well? I think so that there is foundation of human life that Of Human Bondage thus ties between parents and children there. Is not only beautiful to the eye, as a dietary education stare reality, dietary education of the Kanazawa has the "My kind of food education" to powerful.
In order for the project to last, that there are about "food education" "to know deeply" First person is important.To do so, it is necessary that one end can be seen in everyday life. Also widely memorabilia that has been inherited carefully until today is part of the "food education", but "people who support" in order to be one of the advertising for the city to exert individuality only and continue to have a personality you will must be always present.
We've created a guide book that brought together a thing about the culture and traditions surrounding food in the region.
As a result, it issued a guide book to the next, we are working to spread. Of course, by placing the official website, I have an ingenuity necessary pages easily, such as draw.
I was conscious to make you know the "dietary education of only one" seems to Kanazawa in this one book. Of course, I'm going to incorporate the origin does not change even after decades of "food education".
Dietary education of the Kanazawa are being promoted in the clear "foster the people" the goal either, but "to foster a life, get a life, to cherish the life" concept is. It is the environment adjacent to the woodlands Satoumi of Noto got the certification of world agricultural heritage for the first time in Japan, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in 2011 by the (FAO) also lucky, efforts were linked to the "food equal life" looks familiar because it is a city that is blessed, to convey the meaning of the value of food in Kanazawa represented "itadakimasu", "gotisousama", “mottainai”,"omotenashi" such as "hospitality" to the efforts of one by one, have repeatedly devised. The four categories that Kanazawa has been deployed, is located in the efforts of all the "tell the work" makes sense "grow people" clogging. But instead of forcing it to follow the past, it is because it aims to notice it is told, that the inheritance will develop new awareness is born from there.
Was born from the workings that are in harmony with nature over a long time is food, you may be treated just like put a price on goods. Food Education Basic Law from satisfied in particular, events entwined in food as fashion epidemic has been planned and executed. There was also an event to become a motivation, but I think there is no possibility of ending as skyrocket once only, memorable, as was some of the level in question is a waste of funds.
Why prices are high and to say to people who make a living in the food, and not the market, that can not be used is so certain, but a vicious cycle flows into the region often benefit from not sought to reverse exists. I think it is not a problem can be solved right now, but I want to grow steadily the people that you can look at the economy and society to these.If you want to be healed and sick, you, Do you want me what diet? It would be dishes made from ingredients that are in everyday at home probably. "Food education" has led to there.
Ties tradition and technology festivals, beautiful scenery, rich creatures grace, has been passed to protect many of the agriculture, forestry and fisheries brought about by, is what all of which follow the workings of "food". However, as will be ridiculed and satiation nation in the world, including the school lunch, is located in the status quo interest in solid waste restaurant, or convenience store is low in Japan.
In our project, of Wangari Maathai of Kenya that have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in the environmental field and "MOTTAINAI"
And disseminate the activities in mind that 850 million people are also living people "food" is not sufficient in the world is not easy, but such that its thinking is attached to the body naturally, especially children I will never forget the dissemination of to.
Consider the act of "waste", you may get hit with the problem of food hygiene at times, that there is a need to overlay a large study from the viewpoint of environmental cycling.
At home of Kanazawa persimmon is fruitful when it comes to fall, there to wait hung in the eaves and peeled, and from drying naturally, to eat sure to allow suitable time is "persimmon" is astringent that can not be eaten as it is. It is one of the dried fruit, but it is a blessing from nature that can be easily made anywhere at home. That means homemade, image that may be in a safe and healthy is springing immediately.To face up to the process of making is not a basis to lead to trust, be run continuously. I believe in this way, that those who consume those who produce to continue longer understand each other is it most effective. And when you get down to it, savvy on the side get the food and savvy on the side that provides the food is already expressed in each case, as well as the role of life-sustaining, "food" Produce a place where minds and hearts of people to interact you are aware that you have, that it is necessary to increase the sensitivity in their respective positions.
Until now, as has been described, our project is food education activities there is no end to the "grow people". I will continue to approach to the "cultural heart and Kanazawa nurture in food" in a variety of ways in the future. And we plan to set up a strategy to re-examine the day-to-day, while maintaining cooperation with relevant organizations of many, to grow "food education" "Meguraseru thoughts" a lot of people also alone.Do you want to add to the last, it is an initiative that attempts to practice the distribution of agricultural products of the kitchen garden scale. "Agricultural face-to-face" to sell will be responsible for the crops that were cultivated It is the responsibility of, is an effort that so far has also been found, but to continue to continue, including food safety and security, the soil making it is essential is.As a future vision of one of the food education promotion, I will recommend this "Life with agriculture."
