Naoko Kashiwagi 

Japanese cook and founder of Naoko’s Kitchen

Hi, it’s Naoko! Thank you for visiting our website.

I was trained in some cookery schools in Tokyo and opened my cooking class, Cherish Kitchen, in central Tokyo in 2012 and was absolutely enthusiastic to share my cooking skills to adults and children with my passion for food.
Since 2013, I moved to the UK with my family and shared my authentic taste of Japanese food by hosting pop-up supper clubs, Japanese cooking classes, private catering, cooking demonstration on a stage of food festivals and takeaway service in Cornwall. That was absolutely wonderful opportunities and honourable for me. Until I moved to Singapore in 2020, I served my food over 2,300 people in total in Cornwall for 5 years.

This fantastic number entirely amazed me and my passion for serving food still keeps burning with enthusiasm in my hearts in Singapore. Hence I decided to relocate my food business to Tiong Bahru in Singapore with my family.
I love local people and have a passion for sharing my authentic healthy Japanese food with love to you all.

My mission is simple: To entertain the customers with authentic Japanese flavours by adding subtle European or Asian twists to create innovative dishes. 

I look forward to seeing you all in near future in Singapore.
