Mayumi, who prepared delicious recipes for the Ritchie family for the last seven years, now introduces her innovative and enticing approach to macrobiotic cooking in her first English-language cookbook,Mayumi’s Kitchen: Macrobiotic Cooking for Body and Soul. The book – featuring more than 130 of Mayumi’s most popular recipes – includes a letter from Madonna in which the superstar commends her longtime chef’s “amazing food.”
Mayumi Nishimura trained under Michio Kushi, founder of the Kushi Institute< and the foremost authority on macrobiotics. In 1983 she helped to open the Becket, MA, branch of the Institute, where she later worked as a cooking instructor. In 2001 she becameMadonna’s private chef, eventually accompanying the singer on four world tours (Drowned World Tour, re-Invention Tour, Confessions Tour and Sticky & Sweet Tour). Currently based in Japan, Nishimura gives lectures on macrobiotics, writes for several women’s magazines and frequently appears on television.
