Branded Kyoto Vegetables Winter Cooking Fair

Enjoy Kyoto vegetables in winter! Branded Kyoto Vegetables Winter Cooking Fair" starts on January 21!

An event to enjoy Kyoto vegetables, "Brand Kyoto Vegetables Winter Cooking Fair," will be held at participating restaurants in Kyoto Prefecture from January 21 (Sat) to February 19 (Sun), 2023.

The "Brand Kyoto Vegetable Seasonal Cuisine Fair" was held in August and September 2022 and was well received. This time, 25 Kyoto-based restaurants of various genres, from Japanese and Kyoto cuisine to French and Chinese cuisine, will offer special menus using brand-name Kyoto vegetables and a Kyoto-inspired menu.

Kujo leeks, Kyo mizuna, ebiimo, Shogoin turnips, kintoki carrots, etc... There is a wide variety of Kyoto vegetables in winter. Each vegetable has its own history and cultural story that has been handed down from ancient times, and the more you learn about them, the more profound and fascinating they become, such as the fact that they have higher antioxidant capacity (ORAC value) than ordinary vegetables.
