About Yumi Kurosawa
An award-winning Koto star, Yumi Kurosawa is one of today’s most exciting soloists on Japan’s national instrument. Her solo repertoire includes classical Japanese compositions, as well as her own innovative and enchanting original works. Since relocating to the US from Japan, she has played on such stages as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Apollo Theater, National Gallery of Art, and the Blue Note. Kurosawa has been a principal soloist with the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Swan in the UK, and the Houston Grand Opera. She has two solo albums out to date: 2015’s Looking up at the Sky and 2009’s Beginning of a Journey.
Growing up in Galilee and Jerusalem respectively, Loren and Daniel have long been inspired by Israel’s melting pot of culinary backgrounds and the rich mix of culinary immigrant traditions. In this sense, food has always been imbued with a deeper sense of memory and emotion. Loren and Daniel prefer to cook in different locations, adapting the food to fit the setting. Whether that’s outside in a field, in a reclaimed warehouse, or the intimate setting of the home, guests receive genuine food to match a unique experience.
