Gohan Book Tour events, Eastern Australia 2023

Gohan events coming up!

This is my first book tour since March 2019, so I am thrilled to be able to come and meet people and celebrate the book with delicious food and chats. I know I need to still visit so many other places, but sadly this is a self-funded trip and it’s very close to Christmas time when bookshops and restaurants get so busy, but if you have an idea for the next book tour’s event location, please let me know!

There are a few events to be finalised, I will put them all on my events page here as well, as they become available to book.


November 25 — a very special all day cooking class, we will prepare my ideal Japanese breakfast together, which will teach you the fundamentals for any Japanese meal (here’s why I love Japanese breakfasts most of all) and there will be some beautiful Japanese gifts for the guests of this class. More here.

November 26 — book launch, snacks and chat at the beautiful Woollahra library, Sydney. See more here.
