the kitchen & the girl

kawaii kitchen is a personal blog about baking, cooking and all things food. It was started on February 15th, 2011.

“kawaii” is japanese and means cute. The aim of this blog is mainly to share my baking and cooking, and as one thing that’s really important to me with food is to make it look adorable and yummy, I decided to name my blog “kawaii kitchen”.

In my opinion, japanese cuisine is outstanding in food arranging and gentle flavors. I totally admire the art of decorating food in a beautiful but natural way like it is achieved so often in japanese cooking. In this blog, I don’t want to concentrate on japanese recipes but on making food in a way like japanese food with the cute and yummy looks combined with subtle, delicate tastes.

But food is also about so much more than that – it is about sharing, about love and about consciousness of our society, our environment and our world. Food connects all of us in a way and is a precious thing worth of appreciation. I am grateful to have these opportunities of baking whatever mouthwatering comes to my mind and enjoying the results with friends and family – and I try to value that by trying to live in a sustainable way. So now and then, you’ll also find some thoughts of mine on eco- and socio-conscious baking here as well 🙂

Oh, and that’s me, by the way:

  • eats, bakes and cooks all plant-based (former vegetarian, so you’ll also find non-vegan recipes here ;))
  • finds comfort in baking in the middle of the night
  • learning by doing food photography

    1. Hi Rae,
      thank you for your comment! I am also not sure if you have the right person, but why don’t you check my post on vegan eating in Japan? -> There are several restaurant recommendations for the Tokyo/Yokohama area – the Kyushu Jangara Ramen store for example is located in Harajuku, very close to Shibuya 🙂 Hope you can enjoy a lot of delicious food! Have a great time in Japan 🙂
