I’m a food writer, photographer, adventurous eater, devourer of historical cookbooks, first time mother and general roamer. Roaming is somewhat of a specialty of mine. I’m half Japanese, half Australian, but have spent 19 of my 31 years living in other countries. After nearly eight years in China, and four years in the US doing a Fine Art degree at Rhode Island School of Design, I ended up in Florence, Italy, where I lived for seven years.
It was there where I met the man who is now my husband, a Tuscan sommelier and my ideal gastronomic partner in crime, and started my food blog. In a battle over who gets to cook dinner he usually wins. We now live in Melbourne, Australia with our baby girl.
As a food writer you can find my work at The Locavore Edition, a guide to sustainable, local food in Australia and the Field Guide to NSW Produce; The Age Good Food Guide, The Age Good Cafe Guide, Cheap Eats, Australian Traveller and the Canberra Times, to name a few. My photographs have been featured in Kinfolk Journal, Maeve Magazine and The Cheese Mag.
Amanda Hesser has called me the “Renaissance woman for the internet era” and named me as one of her 100 favourite Food Voices. You can find out more about me on The Foodie Bugle or in these interviews at SAYMedia or Food52.
