Akiko Lawson is a Japanese food blogger who grew up in Canada and now lives between Tokyo, Japan. Her blog features creative recipes with traditional ingredients like miso or wakame seaweed from her family’s home country.
Akiko’s love for cooking started in childhood. Her father was a chef so she would help him in the kitchen and eventually learned how to cook herself from watching him make his dishes. He taught her many of the recipes that she uses now, including their favorite: Apple Pie!
When it came time for college, Aiki knew that culinary school would be one of her top choices because even though she studied math throughout high school, being able to cook professionally sounded much more appealing than sitting.
