JAPOLAC Hosts Seafood Workshop at Yaizu Fisheries High School in Shizuoka City

On October 10, JAPOLAC hosted a Seafood Workshop at Yaizu Fisheries High School in Shizuoka City. This collaborative effort involved the active participation of the Department of Food Science at the school.

The primary objective of this culinary workshop was to introduce students to the art of preparing selected seafood dishes from the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region.

Under the expert guidance of Mrs. Yudelka Salvador, from Judy’s Kitchen, students enthusiastically prepared a range of delicious dishes, including shrimp and avocado salad, seafood soup, and stewed fish with rice.

Yaizu Fisheries High School distinguishes itself as an educational institution with a unique curriculum that combines general education with specialized subjects deeply rooted in fisheries and marine science. Here, students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in hands-on experiences related to aquaculture, marine biology, and the intricacies of seafood processing.

This collaboration between JAPOLAC and Yaizu Fisheries High School serves as an invaluable opportunity to broaden Japanese students’ awareness of the rich and diverse seafood gastronomy originating from Latin America and the Caribbean. The workshop also served to foster cross-cultural understanding, aligning with JAPOLAC’s mission to promote various aspects of the countries of LAC region.
