REIKO YOKOTA

PASTRY CHEF
Born in Hokkaido and raised in the U.S., Reiko Yokota brings a storied sensibility to Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto, composing desserts that blend artistry, innovation and nostalgia. In 2016, Chef Yokota joined Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto as Assistant Pastry Chef, bringing a bold yet unconventional approach to the kitchen. Her unique strength lies in crafting surprising flavour combinations and making use of exotic ingredients, like wasabi and kelp, in confectionaries. Along with drawing on her international sensibility, Chef Yokota finds continuous inspiration in the colours and beauty of nature – a gift that Kyoto keeps on giving.

“I love to draw on my memories to craft new desserts. The dots connect together naturally – from my childhood in the American wilderness, to the joie de vivre I found in Paris, to the culinary heritage of my hometown in Japan.”
