I started Foodies simply to share my impressions of food that I encounterd in Japan and other countries.
I hope to inspire people to savour and enjoy the time they spend preparing and eating food. I also hope to reveal the rich diversity and importance of food within the cultures of different countries. I believe that understanding food and culinary culture of different countries is one of the easiest and fastest ways to know and understand the people. Food is one of the most essential things in the human life and the culinary culture of a country embodies the country’s own history, spirit and joy.
I hope you too can discover and enjoy the different tastes of food from other countries and gain an insight into the people and places it's from.


KUTANI porcelain - SAICHI’s Dish + MAURI’s Chocolate -

"KUTANI" dish made by Saichi Matsumoto.

KUTANI means nine valleys and is the name of an area and a village. The two characters that make up the word KUTANI consist of the character for "nine"(KU) and "valley"(TANI). KUTANI porcelain was born in 1655. I enjoy serving the chocolate from a wonderful pastry shop "MAURI" founded by Francesc Mauri in 1929 in Barcelona, with beautiful green & gold SAICHI’s KUTANI dish.
