A food lover, through and through, Chef Lisa Kitahara brings her passion for balanced dishes together with her love of worldly cuisines.
Lisa is the voice, photographer and recipe developer behind the incredible food and recipe blog, Okonomi Kitchen. Okonomi (お好み) is a Japanese word that literally translates to “how you like” or “what you like”, so in developing her recipes, Lisa created dishes that inspire fellow foodies to easily cook up easy and delicious meals to meet their preferences.
Growing up with lots of Japanese influences, Lisa fell in love with cuisines from around the world, and uses them as inspiration for dishes that balance whole foods and raw vegetables, elevated through creative cooking techniques and recipes.
Along with being a food lover, photographer, and writer, Lisa is a huge health & fitness advocate, and can typically be found at a coffee shop working on her blog, at the gym, or out on a walk enjoying her favourite podcasts.
