About the Author

Author Kazuko Masui was a foreign correspondent for a Japanese women's magazine for nearly half a century. She has written numerous books on fashion and gastronomy in Japan and France. Since meeting Kenzo Takada shortly after his arrival in Paris, she has remained one of his most faithful friends. She was also the instigator of the legendary exhibition Kenzo-Liberté that took place in 1989, for the bicentennial of the French Revolution, in Tokyo and Himeji, Kenzo's birthplace. Born in Japan, Chihiro Masui left her homeland at the age of four to live with her parents in New York, London and Paris. After studying philosophy at the Sorbonne, she was both a translator and journalist for the Japanese and French press. She has written numerous articles on great French chefs (Joel Robuchon, Pierre and Michel Troisgros, Georges Blanc and Frédéric Anton). At Éditions du Chêne, she notably published Amandine Chaignot (2014), Kei, with chef Kei Kobayashi (2013), Tartes (2013), Potatoes (2012) and Cupcakes (2011), with chefs Frédéric Anton and Christelle Brua.
