Mimi is a wonderful cook and teacher. She is full of so much energy and life. From beginning to end, we laughed, learned and ate. Her apartment was easy to find and very clean. I'd recommend her to anyone without hesitation.

This was my first time to participate in an EatWith, so I was obviously a little hesitant at first. But Mimi went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable in her home. Before food was even mentioned, we chatted about the different art pieces she had displayed, and about her travels around the world. We cooked tempura together, but Mimi had already prepared several other Japanese dishes for us to try (aside from the miso soup, I'm afraid I can't remember the names!). All the ingredients we used were really fresh, and the dishes were a mix of new and familiar flavours. I was already a big tempura fan, but learning how to make it has made me appreciate it even more. As far as first-time experiences go, Mimi set the bar pretty high; great food, great conversation, great city. Well worth checking-out if you're ever in Kanazawa.

Too many good things to say. First, the apartment: The location was perfect. It's right in the downtown area so super easy to get to. Mimi was also very helpful with directions and texted me to make sure I wasn't lost. When we arrived we were immediately greeted with so much excitement and enthusiasm and just felt so welcomed. The table was exquisitely set up and the apartment was very, very clean. The food: We were able to have a variety of drinks. We had traditional Japanese tea, sake, and beer, all of which were delicious. But the food, oh my lord, the food. If there was such thing as a Japanese heaven I was there. Mimi is a technically trained Japanese chef who has expertise in many areas of Japanese cuisine. I could definitely tell she was well trained from what she prepared. My favorite was the tempura. It was perfectly cooked and there were about 10 different kinds of vegetable tempura. Twas amazing!!! The host: Mimi!!! She was sooooo nice. She has been around the world, from living in New York City to Ethiopia. One of the most interesting person I've ever met in my life, I never once ran out of something interesting to talk about. She was so fun to talk with and has so much passion and enthusiasm for sharing Japanese culture and cuisine to people from around the world. It felt like we've been friends for a long time and I could talk about anything with her. If you ever get the chance to visit Kanazawa I absolutely 100% recommend Mimi's kitchen as the first place you go to experience the best of Kanazawa's cuisine. Thank you Mimi for such an amazing and unforgettable experience.
