Specialising in French pastry with an essence of her Japanese origin, Pastry Chef Mayumi creates pastries and desserts with love and truly enjoys sharing her passion with people. Mayumi is well travelled and has lived in several countries to train her palate and skills, working in Japan, France and Singapore with many passionate chefs. She was inspired by Olivier Bajard, a world pastry champion in France and worked with Olivier at his pastry school Ecole International de patisserie Olivier Bajard. 

In Australia, Mayumi has worked at Lake House (2 hats restaurant) in Victoria, Kazuki’s (1 hat restaurant) in Melbourne, The Bather’s Pavilion (1 hat restaurant) and currently teaches Pastry at Le Cordon Bleu and owns a pastry business "Mimi's Pastry" making order cakes and event catering. She’s also at the Tramsheds grower market most Sundays. 

Mayumi's motto is "Pastries for smiles". Sourcing goods from mostly local farmers, suppliers and her choice of ingredients from Europe and Japan.  Always looking for something good for our body, environmentally friendly ingredients are important to Mayumi in making her sweet creations. That is also one reason, she only does order or custom cakes as such there is no wastage and her customers get freshly made pastries. It takes time and a lot of effort but this is important for her.

She also supports the charity organisation "Two Good" to donate her cakes regularly to share the love to women who have experienced domestic violence.
