Food Education Advisor
A graduate of the Tsuji Culinary Institute, Chiaki started her career as a food artist with a focus on French and Italian cuisine. After training at a traditional Italian restaurant in Osaka, she gained further experience working together with Tanaka Aiko-sensei, a well-known international fellow food artist. Chiaki's education and palate were expanded through traveling and attending cooking classes in Canada, New York, Australia and Tasmania.

Once settled down back in Japan, she started her own company, "en-kitchen". Through en-kitchen she offers many food related services. These include, but are not limited to: cooking classes, catering for both individuals and companies, food education, recipe consulting, kitchen product consulting, food blog and column writing, food illustration and photography.

In the spring of 2016, "en-kitchen cafe" opened in Nagoya, Aichi prefecture.【Vegetable Cafe without Egg, Milk, Wheat en-kitchen】. This cafe was designed with an allergy friendly, vegetable focused menu especially suitable for young mothers, children, vegetarian's, and vegans. Chiaki will continue to work on expanding en-kitchen activities in Tokyo, Nagoya and nationwide.
