I start my day with coffee and end my day with wine. #fact *:) Mimi Claire, this website/blog, symbolizes my foray into the world of baking and cooking. It was born out of my childhood passion in exploring and inventing different types of original recipes with a twist. What started as a self-taught passion journey has been transformed lately into a lifework in my attempt to share my discoveries and tastes thru this channel with like-minded people all over the world. I hope to achieve the fine mix and taste in between the Filipino, Japanese and French cuisine arts in my dreams of becoming a full-fledged chef in my own café/restaurant venture someday. I graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Tokyo in 2014 with a Patisserie Diploma and will continue to study French cuisine sometime soon again. I am currently attending one of Japan’s most popular cooking schools, the ABC Cooking Studio to learn more about Washoku (Japanese Traditional Cuisine) and Wagashi (Japanese Confectionery). Please bear with me in my personal journey in this life-work I have chosen for myself. xo, Claire
