    Spearheaded by world-renowned Japanese chef, Keisuke Matsushima, the Peace Recipe project challenges chefs across the globe to develop an entirely new form of recipe – a recipe for peace. Peace Recipes created by cooperating chefs will be available periodically, with proceeds going toward projects designed to support sustainable food development in aid of struggling regions around the world.

Our kitchen wasn’t designed for cooking. It was designed for Peace. A sense of Peace and a respect for food have been inseparable in the Japanese kitchen for more than 1,200 years, making it the cultural catalyst for learning and community. To us, 'Japanese Food' is 'Peace Food,' with the power to bring people closer together, therefore bringing the world closer together. That's why we created the Peace Kitchen. You’re always welcome in the kitchen, where an insatiable appetite for Peace is exemplified by an unsurpassed passion for food.

Peace Kitchen 5 Principles

Partnership: Everyone is welcome in the kitchen. Cook together, learn together, play together, dine together. Where there's food, there's community. Equality: Taste how the Japanese kitchen can break down borders, span cultures, promote understanding, and bring multiple generations of food lovers together around the table. Awareness: Always a menu brimming with discovery, emphasizing ingredients that demonstrate close ties to seasonality, local growers, a sense of tradition, and a passion for experimentation. Community Experience: An array of workshops and experiences that exemplify the universality, as well as the diversity inherent in the traditions, language, and practices of the Japanese kitchen. Excitement: Ever-changing and always inspiring, there's always a new event, different personality, or an entirely fresh menu being cooked up in the Peace Kitchen. Whatever the surprise, expect unforgettable flavors to linger for years to come.
