Konnichiwa, I’m Alyssia! No, I don’t watch anime or eat sushi every day, but I did grow up eating my mom’s delicious home-cooked Japanese food. It was everything from cute bento boxes with sausages shaped like octopus, to steaming hot takoyaki that I always devoured before they even cooled. From this, I developed a passion for Japanese food and its variety in flavours, and have travelled to Japan to further explore these foods. I also love when different culture’s foods are combined to make a new creation that compliments each other’s unique flavours. However, my day is never fully complete without a baked sweet to satisfy my enormous sweet tooth.
