Yoko may have been born to love cooking because almost everything she ate to grow was home-made by her mother. Naturally, she became a credible assistant to Mom in the kitchen and enjoyed cooking and baking. After starting to work, she attended many cooking classes to learn Italian, French and other cuisine and realized to love cooking after all. In 2008, she opened her own restaurant in Tokyo which also with a culture school. She closed the restaurant business in 2013, but continued culture School. In 2017, she started Kamakura Bento Cooking at home.
Reiko started cooking when she was a kid. Her mother liked ( and still likes) cooking very well and she always served various kinds of Western style dishes as well as traditional Japanese dishes for her family. Ever since she bought herself a lovely baking book, she had been crazy about cake-making. After flying to USA to study, her passion for cooking wasn't lost and whenever she missed home, she cooked Japanese food secretly in the basement kitchen of the dorm. Coming back to Japan, she started her career as a journalist. She have met many chefs, patissiers, bakers, baristas and farmers by now. And with tips she learned from these professionals, she updated her cooking techniques. she also teach baking, too.
As we met each other at Yoko's restaurant in Tokyo and got along with, we thought we should do something with our cooking knowledge. Kamakura is an ideal place to show how wonderful the home-style Japanese cuisine is to foreign visitors. Kamakura is surrounded by ocean and hills and Yoko's house which is our studio has good access to both of them. In comfortable atmosphere of Japanese household, we would like to share great time with you and teach Japanese food culture by making Bento.
