Noriko grew up influenced by her gastronomic mother who taught her to cook anything and everything by the age of 15. She then lived in Switzerland and the US where she learned French and Italian cooking and received diplomas in food studies. A professional cook, Noriko also loved learning to cook from locals around the world - she is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to cooking and enjoys experimenting with other cuisines like Thai and Chinese.
Noriko now coordinates food events as one of her jobs. In her spare time she also teaches her foreign friends how to cook Japanese food and what ingredient substitutes can be used when they return. She believes there is no better way to connect with people from other cultures than around the table, and feels pure joy when she can learn new things about culture through food.
Notes: Noriko will pick you up from the Jieitaimae station on the subway Nanboku line. Her car fits up to 4 people. Please discuss alternate transportation options ahead of your experience if you are booking for 5 or more people.
