Hi! My name is Mimi Takano and I’m a self-proclaimed foodie. I’m an NYU alumna, where I studied media, culture and communications as well as food studies. I love to daydream, to read, and I have a huge passion of all things culinary. Currently I’m working as a paralegal and baking by night. I can’t think of a better set-up 🙂
A little background info: I was born and grew up in Tokyo, Japan. Growing up in an international school (The American School in Japan) allowed me to taste different types of cuisines and I think that’s was a great opportunity for me. My friends came from all around the world. Currently, I have two dogs, a sister, and two amazing parents. I think I get my passion for cooking from my dad. He was always cooking amazing dinners for us and I loved watching over his shoulder or rather right in front of him, which was pretty frustrating for him because I always got in the way. While I loved to help my dad with dinner or make sunday brunch for my family since I was in kindergarten, I started actually baking/cooking in junior year and after that I fell in love with the culinary aspect of life.
I started this blog the summer of 2012 and hopefully will continue to blog for as long as I can.
I hope you all enjoy my blog and if you ever have any questions don’t be afraid to ask! I also hope that it inspires you to make something in your own kitchen 😀
Thanks for stopping by!
