Akemi was a special guest at the BBC Good Food Show in Birmingham earlier this month.
The event showcases top UK chefs, big brands and an all-star line-up. This year’s event featured Michelin masters Michel Roux Jr and Tom Kerridge as well as queen of baking Mary Berry (The Great British Bake Off).
As an established name in presenting traditional Japanese culture to a UK audience, Akemi’s role at the show was to demonstrate the Japanese Tea Ceremony to guests in the VIP room. Here you can see Akemi with Mary Berry during the demonstration.
