Kinu Yukawa
料理家・Chef & Cooking Instructor

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 of enjoying food with all the body's five senses <五感楽しむ和食>.  She appreciates the importance of cooking with produce that is in season and at the height of its flavour. By respecting the seasons and their offerings, food nourishes and brings harmony to the body, which is the principle of "和食 Washoku"  <the harmony of food> .

Kinu has been teaching Japanese cooking in Hong Kong and London for over ten years.  She is fascinated to share her expertise and knowledge of Japanese cooking to students of all walks of life and culinary levels.  

Our Chefs

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.
