Duke Saionji, the 12th and 14th Prime Minister of Japan, had attended the Peace Conference of WWI at Paris 1919. And the Treaty signed at that time is called the Treaty of Versailles.
Mansuke Kusumoto, the third heir of NADAMAN, was chosen as the retinue chef to attend Duke Saionji’s trip to Europe for the Peace Conference at Paris. Mansuke Kusumoto was greatly praised for his cooking skills by Duke Saionji and others. Choosing by their chief chef meant to be the best chef in Japan in those days.
