Restaurant Dreams


“When we are dreaming alone it is only a dream. When we are dreaming with others, it is the beginning of reality.”Screen Shot 2013-03-14 at 14.11.07

The vision is to create a unique restaurant with like minded people, in an natural location close to the element with its roots firmly in traditional Japanese cuisine, along with subtle glimpses of more modern gastronomic expressions and concepts. Most important for me is sharing humanity trust and beauty and going on many journeys to experience that which reflects our best human qualities in life possible.

“to share happiness light  purity creativity and love”

Drawing on the Omakase and Kyoto style Kaiseki traditions, my focus is on seasonal ingredients, sourced directly from some of the most renowned boutique producers in Japan, Spain and what ever inspires. Along with the constantly evolving menus, there will always be an innovative couture aspect where bespoke dishes are created to reflect the creative ever-changing living energies of the seasons, and match the tastes of each individual customer at that moment.

My feelings reflect so many of the influences that have shaped my life. I have  been homeless since the age very young age and traveled and lived in many different situations and cultures  from Japan specially Kyoto -Himalayas, India, Mauritius, Africa, Europe, New York and Indonesia and still ongoing travels await me – and I find myself most comfortable in the hart of real humanity.

I celebrate  and honour the traditional techniques learned in kitchens across Japan to the contemporary molecular gastronomy of modern Spain and all my travels. While my love for MUSIC – Art, fashion, film and design have also played their part – I have aimed for simplicity and authenticity in all aspects.

This blog is all about what fascinates and inspires me in life, were I have been to eat, what I am discovering and all the amazing people on my journey as the homeless chef and in the search for a new adventures.



Its important to protect your dreams as well as this amazing planet. For me it is crucial to protect what you Love and dont let anyone destroy this. I am a creative being and female. Our industry is a very challenging however I want to encourage everyone to not loose there dreams and passion irregardless of what obstacles you may face. What other people think of you is non of your business- you are here for a reason- so live every minute fully and without fear. Love what you do and do it the best that you can because nobody can ever take this from you so protect what you Love.

    No matter what is going on
    Never give up
    Develop the heart
    Too much energy in your country
    Is spent developing the mind
    Instead of the heart
    Be compassionate
    Not just to your friends
    But to everyone
    Be compassionate
    Work for peace
    In your heart and in the world
    Work for peace
    And I say again
    Never give up
    No matter what is going on around you
    Never give up”
    ― Dalai Lama XIV

  8. Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
    Calvin Coolidge
