About your host

My name means "fragrance" in Japanese, and I have always been passionate about teaching guests how to make delicious, fragrant dishes from my Japanese heritage. I learned how to cook traditional Japanese meals and desserts from my mother, Yukiko, who teaches our mochi classes as well. I own a cooking school, Kaori's Kitchen, and teach mochi and ramen classes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
