Yoshimi is born and raised in an average Japanese home. With her curiosity, she started cooking for the family at 12 years old. From that time, she knew that cooking was her passion and continued for almost 30 years now.
When she travels abroad, she makes sure to stop by the local grocery store to get to know local food culture through their ingredients. She keeps her keenness in finding out what the local households prepare and eat daily.
