About Mako

Kon-nichiwa! Greetings! I’m Mako, and I’m thrilled to welcome you to the heartwarming tale of my culinary journey, rooted in the charming city of Kobe, Japan. My upbringing in the fragrant world of our family-run Japanese restaurant paints a nostalgic picture of cherished traditions and mouth watering flavors.

Imagine the scene: my uncle, an artisan of Japanese delicacies, crafting culinary wonders that doubled as after-school delights—a tapestry of fond memories. During summertime, our family’s beachside restaurant transformed into a sanctuary, where days were spent along the shore, and evenings were wrapped in the enchantment of Japanese cuisine.

Our family legacy, tracing its roots back to my great-grandmother’s era, laid the foundation for my culinary aspirations. However, my journey took unexpected turns through law schools in Japan and Australia, navigating the legal and banking landscapes across Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia.

Fueled by a deep-seated passion for my heritage, I bravely transitioned from the legal world to pursue my dream of upholding the family legacy in the realm of gastronomy. Istanbul, Turkey, became the canvas for my culinary endeavors. Yet, the global financial crisis nudged me back into the corporate realm in Singapore, where serendipity led me to my husband, Euan, a Northumberland native. Following our marriage, Northumberland became my new home.

Upon arriving in the UK, I continued corporate and legal pursuits until the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic marked a turning point. Seizing an opportunity in the local food scene, I brought Sushi Discovery to life in 2020—an endeavor fueled by resilience and the unwavering support of our incredible community.

Now, here’s the refined touch: I am the architect of it all, crafting delectable sushi, orchestrating pop-up events, and imparting the art of sushi-making through classes. No extensive team or delivery drivers—just me, embodying authenticity and infusing each sushi roll with a personal touch. So, join me on this elegant culinary journey, where trust, top-quality sushi, and a distinctive personal flair converge to create an experience that resonates with refinement.

As I continue to weave my story through each carefully crafted sushi, I invite you to savor the essence of my journey and discover the flavors that embody the unique charm of Sushi Discovery.
