Keiko Ishida was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. To further her passion for pastry, she went to Paris, France, to attend the Ritz Escoffier School, the Lenôtre Culinary School and the Bellouet Conseil Gastronomic School, and apprenticed at the famous bakery Le Triomphe. Back in Japan, she worked with the renowned baking instructor, Mrs Chie Kato, before setting up her own baking school, atelier K, where she made dreams come true with her beautifully crafted wedding cakes and desserts.
In 2003, Keiko relocated to Singapore and started conducting pastry classes where she gained a large and loyal following. Her first cookbook, Okashi: Sweet Treats Made with Love is a bestseller.
Today, Keiko lives in Tokyo with her husband and golden retriever, Cookie, and visits Singapore to conduct pastry classes whenever the opportunity arises.
