Hi! My name is Ai. I grew up in Japan, helping my mother in the kitchen ever since I was a little kid, watching and learning as she cooked away. My food reflects my background and roots, looking back fondly at meals I created with my mom, as well as reflecting the experiences I've had over years of traveling around the U.S. and the world. My dishes are Vegetarian and/or Pescaterian.
My husband Mat and I built a small farm on our loft rooftop a few years ago and we grow many of the vegetables, greens and herbs I use in the cooking, including the Japanese staple herb, shiso! I select other choice ingredients at the green markets and other quality sources around NYC and beyond. We are very conscious about food, the environment and health. Our tasty meals are well balanced and full of pronounced and subtle flavors.
Flavor and nutrition is what it's about and should not be mutually exclusive. If you want to experience a unique flavor palette and quality ingredients, then this is the place!
