Kinu Yukawa is a Japanese chef and cookery teacher from Kobe, Japan. 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 vegetables that are in season and at the height of their 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's teaching style focuses on cooking techniques and skills, ensuring that each students master the skills. Kinu is fascinated by sharing her expertise and knowledge of Japanese cooking with students of all walks of life and culinary levels.
I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson with Kinu-san. Made a very yummy bento that husband and I enjoyed
Highly enjoyed this class. The food was so delicious. I substituted vegan egg for the eggs. Chef Kinu is an amazing teacher and I look forward to future online classes (I live in Canada). Easy to follow along. Supportive, knowledgeable and kind teacher.
Such a great experience! Will definetly recommend to others. Chef Kinu is supportive, kind, encouraging and a wealth of knowledge. Recipes and instruction were easy to follow.
