About Host



Hello everyone. I'm Kayo. The mother of three kids. I enjoy making meals and lunch boxes for them everyday. I try to make Japanese cuisine for their health and growth. I love making and eating Japanese cuisine(Washoku) and sweet(Wagashi). I experienced living abroad in 2018, and I learned about different food styles such as vegan, vegetarian and halal. I was surprised that the food diversity is very natural overseas. After returning to Japan, I received a lecture from BentoYa Cooking (Japanese cooking association for vegan and vegetarian), and certified as an instructor. I want to pass on Japanese cuisine that can accommodate the food diversity. My cooking class is held at home. Children are also welcome. there's a Japanese-style room, so if you wish, you can dine in Japanese style. Let's enjoy cooking together:)
