About Us

¡Hola y Bienvenidos!

My name is Vanessa, I am the founder and culinary instructor of Nippon Viajero. I grew up in the Southwest of the US in a Mexican home. Being a daughter of immigrant parents gifted me with two worlds full of culture and tradition and most importantly the ability to enjoy extra spicy food!

Our Vision

My mission is to provide a space for communities to come together and share a unique Latin-American culinary experience.

At the moment our workshops are focused on Mexican gastronomy with the hopes to expand to other Latin-American cuisines in the future. We support local farms and small business throughout Japan.

Most importantly, we provide the freshest ingredients on all our workshops!

About the Instructor

Having gathered a multitude of various experiences working in kitchens, I decided to immerse myself in the culinary world. The journey led me to train with a Japanese chef in the heart of Tokyo.

I am passionate and dedicated to better understand the ingredients of Japan. I love making traditional recipes, but what I enjoy the most is creating recipes with a modern twist! Stay tuned for our cookbook which is coming out next year 2022!
