Who is Akiko Sugawara?

Akiko grew up on a rural farm just north of Sendai, Japan. A lifelong cooking enthusiast, she spent her childhood mastering the family recipes, which drew heavily from traditional Japanese culinary practices that relied on an abundance of whole foods to create hearty and healthy vegetable-filled dishes. 

She later moved to Canada, and embraced veganism. Upon her return to Japan, she started BentoYa Cooking, in order to provide vegans with the opportunity to enjoy vegan twists on traditional Japanese dishes.
