PROFILE OF ARTIST

Tateru Yoshino

Executive Chef Tateru Yoshino

Tateru Yoshino goes to extremes to ensure that the ingredients' natural goodness are fully expressed before serving them gracefully in a manner based on the concept of terre (earth) cuisine, which involves preparing dishes as nature intended without disturbing their inherent beauty or essentiality.
Yoshino claims that his vast array of dishes, including his Wild Rabbit Royale and Veal Head Stew, which have attracted the attention of the world's foremost gourmets, are based upon the natural scenery of the place in which he was born and raised.
His creative French presentations that are attracting huge attention in Paris and in Tokyo are sure to be the center of even further attention in the coming future.
