A return to origins

I am very happy to launch my web site today on what happens to be the tenth birthday I've celebrated since I moved to the Bay Area. I have been pleasantly surprised that the more time I have spent living away from my original home country of Japan, the more I have felt attracted to the way of life I grew up with. Maturing beyond the heady days of one's youth does this to you, that's true. But the process of hosting more meals than ever throughout the last couple of years made me realize just how much cooking and sharing delightful food with people means to me.
Thank you to all who gave me the impetus to rediscover this passion for cooking and to enhance respect for my own culture. I look forward to introducing you to some of the secret wonders of Japanese cuisine.
