Haru Inukai was trained in the art of cooking at Tsuji Cooking School in Osaka, Japan. In 1991 Haru joined Hotel Nikko in Sydney as Commis Chef. Under the guidance of Maurice Guillouet, Harunobu developed a passion for classic French cuisine.

He then joined the Hotel Intercontinental in Sydney as Chef De Partie before returning to Tokyo, to work under legendary French chef Joel Robuchon on the opening of Taillevent Robuchon Chateau. 3 years later Haru returned to Australia with his fiancée to make Sydney his home.

Haru worked at Bilson’s Restaurant for a year, followed by Ampersand Restaurant for 2 years, where he was awarded two Chefs Hats. Haru joined VII Restaurant as Executive Chef, where he was again, awarded two Chefs Hats as well as ‘Best New Restaurant’ NSW.

After 4 years at the helm of Galileo at The Observatory Hotel, Haru took the chance to fulfil his dream of opening his own restaurant where he could cook sophisticated Japanese-Franco cuisine in an unpretentious, approachable space. Blancharu was opened in August 2008 and Ramen Ikkyu in 2013.
