Chef Hirohisa Hayashi comes from the countryside of Japan, once called Echizen. This region is richly endowed with nature - beautiful mountains and sea. With access to the purest water, the people of Echizen can produce delicious rice and sake. Natural resources flourish, allowing artisans to hone their crafts - lacquer, forged cutlery, pottery and washi, handmade Japanese paper. The people of Echizen proudly retain their own aesthetic - far from urban culture.
Hirohisa came from my passion to share the essence of Echizen. Through my cooking I hope to convey the treasured beauty of my hometown.
