Hero Profile » About Elizabeth Andoh
Elizabeth Andoh was born and raised in America, although, Japan has been her home for more than four decades.
Elizabeth had a background in Anthropology, but visited Japan in the early 1960's and was captivated by the world of culinary endeavor. She attended the Yanagihara School of Traditional Japanese Cuisine in Tokyo, and began her own culinary arts program, A Taste of Culture in 1972, combining spicy tidbits of food lore with practical tips and skill-building lessons on how to prepare Japanese food. Her programs are conducted in Tokyo and Osaka and offer a unique opportunity for foreign residents and visitors from overseas to explore and enjoy Japan's culture through its food.
Elizabeth has authored many cookbooks on Japanese cuisine, including "Kansha" and "Washoku." Her mission is to get people to think differently about how they feed themselves, and how to use food products in a less wasteful manner.
