TOKIDOKI: JAPANESE grandmother-style food

 

Japanese grandmother-style food, simple to eat a bit more difficult to explain. I serve what I discovered travelling through Japan collecting recipes from both young friends and unknown old ladys alike, just anyone who was kind enough to share his/her soul food secrets. Because the dishes I cook hardly ever make it in the menu of Japanese restaurant around here, I prefer to "choose for you", my menu is fixed, so you don't have to struggle trying to guess what "furofuki daikon" could possibly taste like.

Recipes are adapted using local vegetables and menus change every week so you get fresh stuff and we save space in the freezer :)

Our down to earth food is served with no frills in a homy setting.

About me:

I first went to Japan as a filmmaker to work on a project, and what I discovered changed my life: a whole new dimension of cuisine. I was impressed & invigorated by the the taste & diversity of the light & healthy dishes I encountered, completely unlike what I had previously eaten in Japanese restaurants abroad. 

Impassioned by these culinary discoveries, 

I decided to make Japan my home. During the five years I spent in Japan, I switched from being a filmmaker to a cook. I learned the trade by working in restaurants specializing in Italian & Japanese cuisine. Eventually, my path lead back to Europe, and specifically to Brussels. I am glad to share my passion for fresh, local ingredients & Japanese cuisine with you. 

 

Welcome to my kitchen !
