Emi Kazuko is the author of numerous food books, and was the winner of the Best in the World Asian Cuisine Book Award from the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2001 in Périgueux for the book Japanese Food and Cooking. Another of Emi's books, Street Café Japan has been made into a 3-part TV series transmitted in UK and Australia by the UK Style digital channel. For this, Emi acted as a programme consultant, leading the crew to various culinary centres in Japan.

Emi has also contributed articles to magazines such as Condé Nast Traveller and to bestselling books such as the Eyewitness Travel Guide to Japan. As a professional broadcaster, she has appeared on ‘Woman’s Hour’ (Radio 4) and BBC World Service current affairs programmes.

Japanese home cooking is Emi's strength and she both teaches cooking as well as prepares food for photography. She is particularly thrilled to work as a consultant on food development and leads delegations from the foreign food industry to Japan.

It is Emi's hope that Japanese cooking will one day become part of the daily Western diet. Through her professional work, she is helping to achieve this.
