Yui Aida is a dessert chef and food painter from Tokyo, Japan. She uses naturally grown local ingredients to create desserts, no dairy, no egg.
Drawing inspiration from fresh and native ingredients wherever she goes, Yui’s goal is to “see the land, eat a thing of the land, and create a dish using ingredients from the land”.
For this year’s “TAIWANfest – The Kitchen of Sweetness”, I put a program together to inspire this Japanese artist, who has a wondrous imagination with meticulous observation skills, to incorporate naturally grown Canadian local ingredients into her dessert creations.
Here are some stories behind the scene:
Aug. 26&27 @ Harbourfront Centre, Lakeside Terrace, 4:00 – 5:00 pm
Sept. 2 & 3 @ Downtown Vancouver, Granville 500, 2:00 – 3:00pm
Sept. 4 @ Downtown Vancouver, Granville 500 3:00 – 4:00pm
