Born and raised in Japan, Chef Kishimoto's career began at an early age in the local fish market. After obtaining his chef's license, he went on to work at sushi and kaiseki style restaurants in Osaka and Kyoto, and finally Vancouver. He has close to three decades of experience. Following the adage "eat with your eyes", he enjoys creating food that is as beautiful as it is delicious.
