U.S.-Japan Culinary Cultural Exchange Chefs Scholarship Program
2017 Scholarship Recipients
The Chef Scholarship Program is one of our most important initiatives at The Gohan Society, as it allows us to send U.S.-based chefs to Japan, where they will experience a truly genuine and unforgettable culinary adventure. In exchange, we bring chefs from Japan to train at restaurants in New York. Past U.S.-based scholarship recipients include Chris Muller, Executive Chef of the Michelin three-star rated restaurant Le Bernardin; Chef Eddy Leroux, Chef de Cuisine at Daniel (two Michelin stars); Cédric Vongerichten, Chef de Cuisine at Perry St; Chef Brother Luck, owner/chef of Four by Brother Luck in Colorado Springs and “cheftestant” on Bravo Top Chef; and Suzanne Cupps, Chef de Cuisine of Untitled at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
