Japanese and Nikkei cuisines are two of my greatest passions in life. I was fortunate enough to grow up in a Japanese home in the South American city of Sao Paulo, and have since moving to London in the early 1990s, pursued my interest to learn more about these cuisines.
On leaving investment banking in 2011, I moved to Tokyo to do Japanese food research and recipe writing. I took private Japanese cookery classes during the day and worked at a Japanese Izakaya (casual Japanese restaurant) at night. In 2012 I returned to London and qualified with Le Grand Diplome in French Cuisine and Patisserie at Le Cordon Bleu, the same year I started my Japanese & Nikkei Supper Club which I still run from my home in Islington.
