Hi! My name is Manami. I’m a Japanese woman with many years of experience cooking “washoku” or Japanese cuisine in my kitchen. My husband is British, so I have plenty of experience sharing Japanese culture with foreign friends and family members including food, drink and traditional clothing. I’ve visited various countries like Canada, US, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Taiwan, UK, France, Italy, Switzerland and Portugal. I’ve tried a lot of Japanese food around the world, but most of it wasn’t that good. The best Japanese food is right here in Japan! I love cooking everyday dishes like miso soup, tempura, okonomi-yaki and so on to special ocasion dishes like sushi and osechi — special dishes for new year. I have already taught Japanese cooking to guests from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Australia, America, Germany and Britain, and now I am waiting to share the secrets of delicious Japanese cooking with you!
