About Kaori Becker: Growing up as a “hapa” (half-Japanese) woman in the Bay Area, Kaori was surrounded by her mother Yukiko’s Japanese home-cooking. When Yukiko told her that many years ago Kaori’s grandmother owned her own  ramen shop in Fukushima, Japan, Kaori decided to dive deeper into her roots through cooking ramen.

​After studying and specializing in ramen-from-scratch, Kaori taught a class at The Seasoned Farmhouse, a recreational cooking school in Columbus, Ohio, in 2014. Shortly afterwards, Kaori taught other classes at Franklin Park Conservatory, centering around Asian cuisine, including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai and Indian. In 2015, while teaching English to high school students, Kaori ran a bi-weekly cooking club every month, beginning to realize  that her passion for cooking, and teaching others how to cook, was greater than her passion to teach English. After moving to the Bay Area in the summer of 2016, Kaori created her business, Kaori’s Kitchen.
