M KYOTO editorial department interviewed the chef! We received a reader message from Mark about Kyoto. Enjoy our new spring menu inspired by Nishiki Market.

Q1.What is your impression of Kyoto?
It's my favorite place. I usually live in a noisy place in America, so I like how time seems to move more slowly in Kyoto.

Q2. Please tell us if there is a place you particularly like in Kyoto.
Tsukemen shop and Nishiki market in Takakura Nijo. I enjoyed looking at the cooking utensils at the market, especially the ladles and knives.

Q3. Our web media is viewed mainly by people in Kyoto. If you don't mind, could you say something to the readers?
Please come and try it and let me know what you think.
I believe that cooking doesn't end when you serve it; it becomes even more wonderful when you share it with others. I would be happy if you could experience that wonderful experience at [Mr.Maurice's Italian].
