Marc MatsumotoI’m a chef, photographer and food personality who’s loved cooking since before I could see over the kitchen counter. For me, food is a life-long journey of exploration, discovery and experimentation which has literally taken me to the far corners of the earth.

I truly believe that by making wholesome delicious food accessible to people of all backgrounds, the world becomes a better place. That’s why my cooking philosophy is that that with some basic techniques and a little inspiration, you can make a tasty meal from even the most derelict pantry. I started this blog to show you some of the techniques I’ve learned, to introduce you to some new ingredients, and to inspire you to experiment and make good food better!


I'm Marc, and I want to teach you some basic techniques and give you the confidence and inspiration so that you can cook without recipes too!
