I adore this show

First and foremost I really appreciate the ability of host Akiko to connect with guests and let them tell their stories. Also I’m thankful for how she expertly highlights how culinary traditions connect to social influences.

Great Show!

I have an affinity for Japanese cooking, as understaning its principles helped me to take my work as a chef to the next level, but excellent show nonetheless.

Just awesome.

If you love Japanese food, subscribe now. Akiko is a fantastic host with super interesting guests on each and every episode. I just recently found this podcast and the latest episode as of this writing (Episode 120) just had me hooked. It was so interesting hearing about different styles of sushi and Yuji Haraguchi's (many) different restaurants! Its a shame I don't leave on the east coast as I'd love to visit his restaurants. Do yourselves a favor and subscribe to this podcast now! I have 119 more episodes to get through and I'm looking forward to each and every one of them.

Keep up the great work, Akiko!
