Une occasion spéciale à fêter ? Organiser un événement privé
Hi! My name is Ai. I grew up in Japan, helping my mother in the kitchen ever since I was a little kid, watching and learning as she cooked away. My food reflects my background and roots, looking back fondly at meals I created with my mom, as well as reflecting the experiences I've had over years of traveling around the U.S. and the world. My dishes are Vegetarian and/or Pescaterian. My husband Mat and I built a small farm on our loft rooftop a few years ago and we grow many of the vegetables, greens and herbs I use in the cooking, including the Japanese staple herb, shiso! I select other choice ingredients at the green markets and other quality sources around NYC and beyond. We are very conscious about food, the environment and health. Our tasty meals are well balanced and full of pronounced and subtle flavors. Flavor and nutrition is what it's about and should not be mutually exclusive. If you want to experience a unique flavor palette and quality ingredients, then this is the place! Please send me a message if you would like to setup private party. Here is my facebook page to follow upcoming events and view more pictures! https://www.facebook.com/ajitofood
Production as hobby and Food as a life!
Ils parlent de leur expérience chez Ai
We had a fabulous evening with Ai. The food was perfectly cooked, delicious and unique, our hosts explained the food and from where it was sourced, and the guests were an interesting mix of friendly people - local New Yorkers and travelers together. I highly recommend this experience and would eat with Ai again. Thank you!
Fantastic, Ai's home is unlike any NYC home I've seen, and I love every deliberate attention to detail not just in the space, but especially the food. We were chatting with fellow diners by the end of it and unianmously sometimes silent for our first tastes in whichever course was coming. Highly recommended for any seafood lovers!
Oh, what a great find! The food was exceptional, the experience was extraordinary. Each dish out of ten courses looked like a painting. She not only is a great chef but also is a very warm host. I and as well as my 6 guests for the night left Ai's place with very pleasant memories on mind and taste on our tongues.
We had ten courses of beautifully prepared food. Every dish was lovely to look at as well as exceptional to eat. Ai and her assistant were working so hard to prepare the dinner; I think I might have appreciated a little more social interaction to help guests get to know one another, start conversations, etc. But overall it was a wonderful experience.
