My name is Jason and I created this website. I did so for a number of reasons. All of which would be made clearer if you knew a little more about me.
I am originally from Sydney Australia. I moved to Japan with my family in 2012 and have lived here ever since. For anyone who lives in Tokyo or has visited, you will know that it is a pretty intense city with many attractions, lights, sounds and noises. Well for me, coming from a small country town and never really seeing the appeal of living in a big city, this had started to take its toll. Cooking was my escape, my happy place.
The name “Foreign 2 Food” basically has 2 components. People can be unaware of different ingredients and food from other cultures and how to use them. I want to be able to educate people, as well as myself, in these ingredients and foods and show people how to use them. So in this sense I want to introduce “foreign” concepts and help people turn it into “food“. The other component being that I my self am a foreigner in Japan and for many expats out there, food is one of the things that helps us deal with being away from home for long periods of time.
