I’m Ilsa Enomoto, a lover of food, friend of the Earth, designer, a Master Composter, and a mother of a teenage artist. I’ve been cooking since I was a little kid and am lucky to have grown up in Hawaii where there are lots of different food cultures to explore. I love the way that food brings people together, either eating it or making it or even talking about it!
Other things I love are cats and most animals, crafting, composting, drawing, video games, and being outside!
