It was a lovely day to have a chat with Juri at my house. She has just come back from England to form the foundation of her business. This morning, I enjoyed preparing a room to welcome her, cleaning and tidying stuff.

Juri seemed to be satisfied with Japanese food and analysed the current situation about Japanese people’s food preferences. Although I love eating, baking and reading recipes, I’ve never analytically thought about it like Juri. Her perspectives about food such as feeling the ingredients from the taste, mass preference for the taste in each country and giving careful consideration to the appearance of a meal were new angles for me.

I was very lucky to see her again before going to England.
