Pepper Pick-up

Excitement rippled across among the members when they set foot on the pepper planting fields in Hanyan.
"It is the Sichuan pepper that brings me here," said Yamanobe Hitoshi, a famous chef in Japan and a member of the group.
Everyone picked up the scissors and began culling the clusters of the pepper dangling on the trees, thrilled by the strong fragrance all over the fields.
"This trip made me realize how important the pepper in the daily life of the locals," said Yamanobe Hitoshi, after an introduction by local pepper growers.

Cooking Contest

The trip came to a climax on the evening of July 14 when a cooking contest was held among the chefs from Japan and China, which gave a display of a variety of classic dishes and creative versions. To give the best performance, Yamanobe Hitoshi even brought some choice ingredients from Japan.
Another member Tetsu Nagasawa learned cooking from a famous Sichuan chef in Japan and felt at home during the trip. The scene reminded him of the days of his internship and he presented an authentic Chinese dish to show his deep feeling for Chinese food.
"I'm so impressed by this tour in Sichuan. Now, I'm expecting my next trip."
