About Azusa Oda
Azusa Oda is an avid home cook, food blogger, and designer. She comes from a long line of professional and home cooks, and her abilities in the kitchen have been heavily influenced by growing up as her mother’s unofficial sous chef. Raised in both Tokyo and the Bay Area of California, she had a bicultural upbringing that shaped the way she views Japanese culinary traditions and techniques.
She created her blog, humblebeanblog.com, in 2008 to share her contemporary variations on Japanese dishes and to show that simple and delicious Japanese food can be made at home with relative ease. While cooking is one of her passions, she nurtures an equal interest in design and has an MFA from California College of the Arts. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband and daughter.
