Welcome to the Vegan Ronin!

Who: Hi I’m Jhenn! I am a private chef and you’ll find me  hosting supper clubs, catering dinner parties and special occasions. My background is in Japanese food, as a chocolatier, baker, raw chef, teacher, and as a head chef.

What: The Vegan Ronin focuses on creating vegan food organically and creatively. It’s about empowering you to make your own food choices; not being preachy about it. And if you’re not into cooking, well, that’s why I’m a private chef- to do it for you! Get in touch if you would like to book for a certain date. People previously have booked for birthdays, family get-togethers, business outings, dates, and surprise parties!

When: I’ve been vegan since 2001 and The Vegan Ronin food blog was started in 2006 as a way of documenting cooking and being vegan in Japan. Since then it has evolved with me becoming a real chef, posting recipes and vegan-related events.

Where: I started Choco-A-Go-Go, an artisan vegan chocolate company, in 2005 originally based in Ohio.  I lived in Japan originally in 2002 (Osaka/Kyoto), and returned in 2006 working and cooking on and off until 2009 (Mie Prefecture). In 2010 I moved to London, UK and started the Vegan Ronin Supper Club in 2011. Most supper clubs and parties take place in London, but please get in contact for other locations!

    Just happened across your blog and I’m glad I did.

    I’ve recently moved to Japan for a study abroad exchange program and would love to eat vegan when I’m at home (when I’m out, I’ll eat anything, so I’m not true vegan) but 1.) I don’t fancy myself a good cook, and 2.) I’m in a whole different country, with a whole different language and writing system.

    Still, I figured it could be done and lo and behold, I found you! So here’s an early thanks:
