About Author

Yamashita Masataka

Chef Yamashita Masataka was trained in Tsuji Culinary Institute, a well-known and respected culinary institute in Osaka, Japan. He worked at various pu00e2tisseries around Japan for 10 years before starting his own pu00e2tisserie in Nara, which quickly became one of the top pu00e2tisseries there. Eight years later, yearning for new challenges and a change of scenery, chef Yamashita moved to Singapore where he took charge of the kitchen at Pu00e2tisserie Glacu00e9, turning it into a haven for delightful cakes and pastries. Chef Yamashita soon saw an opportunity to revive his pu00e2tisserie from Japan and re-established Flor Pu00e2tisserie at Duxton Hill, Singapore.

Today, chef Yamashita no longer runs Flor, but his own Japanese artisan pu00e2tisserie at Tangjong Pagar Plaza, aptly named Chef Yamashita.

This is chef Yamashitau2019s second cookbook. His first cookbook, Tanoshii, clinched the Best First Cookbook award at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards 2013 and is a bestseller.
