About the Author
Mayumi Nishimura was born in Aichi Prefecture in 1956. At 26, she went to the U.S. to study macrobiotics under Michio Kushi, the leading authority in the field. In 1983 she helped establish the Kushi Institute in Becket, MA-the first macrobiotic school in the country-where she later worked as a cooking instructor and chef. In 2001 she became Madonna's private chef. She has accompanied the superstar on four world tours. Currently based in Japan, Mayumi gives lectures on macrobiotics, writes for several women's magazines, and frequently appears on TV. She has written four books in Japanese. This is her first book in English.
