What challenge have you overcome in your kitchen? I am collecting antique local kitchen stuffs, such as old medicine pots, in antique markets because these stuffs go quite well with this old and hand-made kitchen. Surprisingly, my Japanese kitchen stuffs blends in perfectly in the European taste kitchen!

Give Megumi a THUMBS UP if you think this kitchen belongs in the finals!

What's the story of your kitchen?
Late 19th century "maison"(house), renovated by our Belgian landlord by hand. The kitchen cabinets are re-cycled old document cabinets for office. The outside of the kitchen is a park with lots of trees, so we can enjoy the sound of birds.

What is your favorite meal to cook here?
I and my partner Keiichi are trying to make authentic Belgian cuisine, such as Flemish beef stew. But my Belgian friends love my Sushi.
