Growing up in Australia with a strong Japanese influence, Yuki Higashi's background in food is truly unique. She values the balance of five basic tastes with emphasis on flavour, quality and freshness of each ingredient in her dishes. Yuki’s dishes are the perfect combination of Western and Asian fusion, using seasonal and local produce, fresh herbs and spices.
Yuki has experience working in cafes, bars and five star restaurants throughout Perth, including the Heirloom Restaurant, Fraser Suites. Working for celebrity Chef, Pete Evans, at Heirloom promoting his idea of healthy lifestyle, The Paleo Way, has been a huge highlight of Yuki’s career.
Like Pete, Yuki believes that healthy living and diet is the best medicine and maintains this through her own healthy lifestyle. Through experimentation with different food, her training and hospitality experience, Yuki has discovered a talent for creating dishes that are simple, yet complex in flavour and texture. This is a talent often very difficult to master.
Yuki’s passion and belief in healthy living has encouraged her to learn more about food nutrients and health and she is currently studying Health Science / Naturopathy to compliment her career in food.
