Raised in a traditional Japanese family, my mother was a fanatical cook who instilled the virtues of well-prepared food in me at an early age. Living near the mountains close to Mount Fuji, we were blessed with fresh air and home-grown organic vegetables for every meal. I moved to the USA and studied classical music at university in Chicago. When I finished the course, my passion changed, my love of food inspired me to train as a professional, and I studied for “an associate in applied science in culinary arts” with the prestigious “Le Cordon Bleu” at the Cooking and Hospitality Institute of Chicago. My first professional appointment was in the “Soul Kitchen” restaurant in Chicago, working with Chef Curtis Giszczynski. Here, I learned the craft of line cooking in an exceedingly busy restaurant, and later helped Chef Curtis to develop Asian and fusion dishes. Back in Japan I was a consultant for the “Rock” restaurant and microbrewery, with menu planning and the development of fusion items. Once back in Japan, I was keen to develop my knowledge of traditional Japanese cooking, augmenting the skills I had learned on “Le cordon Bleu” course. Revisiting traditional Japanese cuisine after my European training allowed me to experience my own heritage in a new light. I was trained by master noodle chef Serizawa, with whom I learned special Soba and Udon noodle skills. After I moved to England and I worked for authentic Japanese restaurant in central London. I developed new recipes for both the restaurant and the sushi delicatessen where I also created a new menu. Read all Hide
