Thanks for stopping by! After emigrating to the United States from my native Japan I worked for years in front-of-house positions in New York City restaurants. This led to my formal culinary training and, coupled with my life-long love of food, made a career in the culinary arts inevitable.
After graduation from culinary school in the Eastern United States, I started working under a French-trained chef in Hoboken, NJ. Upon moving to the San Francisco Bay Area I was fortunate to have worked with a number of talented and excellent culinary professionals, and my exploration, experience and enjoyment of the culinary world has only grown since then.
My adventures in cooking and dining continue, and I hope you will follow along and share yours too! Thank you!
