Naoko Kashiwagi 

Japanese cook and founder of Naoko’s Kitchen

Hi, I’m Naoko! Thank you for visiting our website.

I was born and grew up in Tokyo that is dynamic and full of opportunities to try diversity of global foods.
I was trained in some cookery schools in Tokyo and opened my cooking class, Cherish Kitchen, in central Tokyo in 2012 and I was absolutely enthusiastic to share my cooking skills to adults and children with my passion for food.
In 2013, I moved to the UK with my family and shared my authentic taste of Japanese cuisine 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 great honour for me. Until I relocated 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. I was pleased to restart my sharing of passion in Singapore with my family.

My recipes are based on very traditional Japanese cuisine and use a various natural Umami flavours which enrich the tastes of dishes.
My philosophy is simple: home-cooking should be simple but be colourful even if we make a single dish for a day. Just adding one more colour to your routine dish is absolutely beautiful, which will bring you a new joy and excitement. Colour brings us not only great nutritions also up-lifting feelings to your family and dinner time.

I hope you enjoy our cooking and you will entertain your loved ones by your home-made Japanese treat.
I look forward to seeing you all in near future in Singapore.
