Kaori's Kitchen is a culmination of Kaori and Yuki's love of cooking and their desire to share this love with those who also love food. Growing up as a "hapa" (half-Japanese) woman in the Bay Area, Kaori was surrounded by her mother Yukiko's Japanese home-cooking. After studying and specializing in ramen-from-scratch, Kaori taught classes at The Seasoned Farmhouse and Franklin Park Conservatory, centering around Asian cuisine. Asking her mother Yukiko, also a talented cook, to join her team was a natural move. Yukiko has been well-versed in mochi making for several years, making mochi for local festivals and bazaars in the Bay Area. Now, Kaori and Yukiko work together to offer mochi, ramen, udon and other Japanese cooking classes to the Bay Area and beyond.
