Cooking Up a Storm in English

Harumi Kurihara is sometimes referred to as Japan's equivalent of Martha Stewart or the "Naked Chef", Jamie Oliver. She has write a slew of cookery and lifestyle books, selling more than 10 million copies in Japan, and is regarded as the country's most famous housewife. Her latest challenge was to write a cookery book in English. Published by Conran Octopus Cookery in London last September, it has been chosen as the best cookbook in Asia in 2004 in the Gourmand Awards. Kurihara has decided to take the next logical step: she has enrolled in a full-immersion English-language program in Canada so that she can teach cooking classes in English. The 57-year old kitchen celebrity says, "I have a feeling that there are going to be some dramatic developments for me in my 60s."
