Hello everyone! Thank you for stopping by. My name is Yayoi. I’m an adventurous eater and a food lover from Japan, and currently living in Calgary, Canada. I think food is an important part of any cultures. Food reflects culture and we can understand a culture through food.

In the past 15 years in Canada, I have learned many different cultures through their foods including Chinese, Thai, Indian, Filipino, American, Vietnamese, Egyptian, and of course, both English and French Canadian cultures. I think now it’s time for me to revisit my own culture through the food, and that’s the reason I’ve started this blog.

Japanese people love eating and we are curious and open to different cultures. We are also pretty good at taking in things from different cultures, tweak them a little bit and enjoy them in our way. At the same time, we enjoy adding a new twist to traditional dishes. In other words, Japanese food culture and trends are always changing.

I’m looking forward to exploring all kinds of Japanese food and the reflecting culture. If you can enjoy discovering a different side of Japanese food and culture through my blog, I’m very happy.
