Born in Kobe, Japan, Hisae Sakamoto is a chef and licensed nutritionist. She spent more than a decade managing dining establishments and providing food consultancy services in Japan and Singapore. In 2011, after developing a great passion for French pastries, she returned to Kobe to set up Pas de Deux KOBE, a French pastry shop and culinary school. She acquired her confectionary diploma from Le Cordon Bleu Kobe in 2015.
Inspired by her friend’s diabetic condition, Hisae decided to create desserts that diabetics and people with dietary restrictions could enjoy. This resulted in SINLESS Desserts, a line of cakes and sweet treats that are low in carbohydrate and do not contain sugar. Hisae continues to share her passion for healthy baking through giving lectures at universities on carbohydrate and sugar substitutions for baking and conducting classes for amateur bakers.
