Kinu Yukawa
料理家・Japanese Food Specialist

Kinu Yukawa is a Japanese chef and cookery teacher from Kobe, Japan, currently based in London. She ventured into the world of food early in life and fostered the basics of cooking from her grandmother. Later she trained French cuisine at Ecole Ritz Escoffier Paris and traditional Japanese cuisine in Kyoto.

Kinu believes in the simplicity of the Japanese philosophy in enjoying food with the body's five senses  <五感楽しむ和食> as well as cooking with the produce in season. Bringing 'harmony' to the body nourished by the seasonal 'offerings' which is the precise meaning of the word <Washoku 和食 > the harmony of food.

Kinu has been teaching Japanese cooking at the Japan Centre London since 2011, sharing her expertise and knowledge of Japanese cooking to students of all walks of life and various levels of culinary interests in the UK and Europe.


Above and beyond!  As I am a vegan I truly enjoyed her Shojin Temple cooking class.  Not only did we learn how to prepare the dishes, Kinu-san's presentation of the food was exquisite.  Just how it is done in Japan.
