I booked a vegetarian cooking class on Cozymeal with Chef Leslie and it couldn't have been better. The food, the atmosphere, the chef - everything was just right. Looking forward to my next event with Chef Leslie!

What a fun class! Chef Leslie shared her stories from Japan and knowledge about where to find great ingredients. Her zaru soba was so refreshing! I had been wanting to go to an Izakaya restaurant, but now I think I might just invite some friends over and make some of Leslie's dishes!

I consider Japanese cuisine to be the best in the world and my personal favorite. I often cook rustic, home-style "ofukuro no aji" dishes, literally translated as "mother's taste" cooking. My traditional Japanese food is clean and healthy, with a subtle balance of flavor. I also create original and modern Japanese recipes, based on my 5 years of living in Japan. I believe that cooking tells a story about the cook's life and I have many delicious stories yet to tell.
