Yuko and Noriko

Yuko and Noriko launched Japanese Cooking 101 in 2012 to show the world how to make fresh, simple, and tasty Japanese meals that can be prepared at home by everyone.

Yuko and Noriko grew up in Japan watching their mothers and grandmothers prepare food at home. Norika is also a professionally trained pastry chef.

They create recipes based on those memories, as well as their own years of experience cooking at home for their families. They both live in San Diego, California.
