Masayoshi Baba was born with great passion of Japanese cuisine. He has almost 20 years of kitchen and sushi experiences with many types of Japanese cuisine, “WA SHOKU” but his passion is not only Japanese food. He has studied many kinds of international cuisine. He started his kitchen experience when he was a university student. Since then, he has never stopped studying food. His creations are based on Japanese cooking techniques but he uses many different cultures’ cooking techniques to get UMAMI out from each ingredient with perfect timing and seasons. Since he came to Vancouver, he is leading Vancouver Sushi culture as a sushi chef. He was working as a sushi chef at one of the high-end Japanese restaurants for about 10 years and finally he opened his own restaurant with his passion and his own creations. Masayoshi.ca
