Sonoko Sakai’s life changed when she started teaching her friends how to cook. Her classes grew in popularity and now those lessons can be found in her new cookbook, Japanese Home Cooking: Simple Meals, Authentic Flavors. Sonoko stopped by Radio Cherry Bombe to talk about her interesting life, from her childhood spent moving to various cities with her airline executive father and housewife mother, to her time as a producer in the film industry. Today, Sonoko champions simplicity in her food, great ingredients, and heritage grains.
