Wakako Guppy

Cookery School Tutor

Wakako is a Japanese-licensed chef and a native of Japan.

In 2009 she launched 'Project Roots' in Tokyo, a long term project aimed at teaching Japanese cooking and named in honour of her mother's home cooking inspiration. In a series of classes, Project Roots taught foreign and local residents how to preparea wide range of authentic Japanese dishes.

Japanese food isn't just about sushi.

Wakako completed her food academy studies as the top student for that year and has also worked in restaurant kitchens in Japan to gain advanced skills. She moved to the UK in 2012 and has restarted Project Roots as 'Kitchen Wakako'. She aims to deliver wonderful Japanese food to this country through cooking lessons, catering and as a private chef.
