In today’s world of instant gratification, Chef Miku still believes that great food is a labor of love. It is his belief that a great meal can make someone’s day, create a lifelong memory, or even change someone’s life! One of his favorite quotes is, “A bite of food has more philosophy than all the books of the world”.
