This summer I got a junior vegetable sommelier qualification． Ｂecause I wanted to learn about fruit and vegetables for health of my family. Actually my husband had a serious illness last year and had a few operations. And I knew that vegetable meal is necessary for a good health by reading some books at that time, and I wanted to do anything I can do, so I changed my home cooking to mostly vegetable meal.
Fortunately he recovered in about a half year. I was sure of the effect on fruit and vegetables !!
By the way Vegetable sommelier is the unique qualification in Japan. And the goal of junior vegetable sommelier is to become a person who enjoys learning about, and sharing information about fruit and vegetables. I knew fruit and vegetables have an identity, or character, just like humans. It’s so interesting ,isn’t it? I‘d like to learn about the true value and the fascination of many fruit and vegetables ! And I hope the unique qualification spread to other countries from Japan.
