Yoko is the Pastry Chef at Leonelli. Originally from Japan, Yoko was inspired from a very young age by her father who is a Chef and runs his own restaurant. Before joining the team at Leonelli, Yoko worked and developed her skills at Michelin-starred restaurants including Benoit Tokyo, Joël Robuchon Château Tokyo, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon Tokyo, Daniel NYC, and Le Jardinier New York. This industry feels very natural to her and she could not imagine doing anything else. She gets inspired by her co-workers and the talents around her and is very passionate about showing the beauty of ingredients through the lens of her pastry creations.
