Masumi Diaz       Eriko Yokoyama

Our Story

Both of us grew up with the probiotic-rich traditional Japanese diet.    

Eriko learned authentic French cooking at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and owned a restaurant in Aptos California for 13 years. 

Masumi grew up in the Japanese countryside on a steady diet of food made from scratch, just like "farm to table" Watching her both grandmothers prepare the food throughout her childhood. Now she shares their legacy with her young granddaughters. 

We started making miso and fermented foods together 15 years ago and started teaching probiotic cooking classes in 2016. Soon, we started making miso paste  and Hakouya Miso Dressing at El Pajaro CDC Commercial Kitchen in Watsonville, California due to students and community popularity.

We are passionate about sharing fermented food and classes with you and your family!
