Welcome to Secrets of a Kitchen Wizard!
My name is Mari Suzuki, and I am the author of “Kitchen Wizard Flexipes: Simple Time-Saving Secrets for Tasty Global Cuisine”. I am not a chef, nor a nutritionist. I am a Kitchen Wizard. An infinite array of delicious dishes come out of the thin air of my kitchen in no time — as if whipped up by a magical wizard.
I consider myself a Cooking Optimization Expert, not because I have a fancy culinary degree, but because I’m just plain passionate about eating great food from all over the world, and figuring out how to make a variety of healthy, tasty dishes at home with the least amount of time, effort, and money. A quick and cheap alternative to traveling across the globe! Having grown up in Tokyo, Japan, the love of efficiency and delicious, nutritious food runs in my blood. Applying what I learned as Global Logistics Consultant at Federal Express, and as a Systems Engineer at IBM, I created the most simple, flexible and efficient home-cooking process called the Kitchen Wizard Method — great for any kitchen, cuisine, or diet.
I can eat like a football player (according to my father-in-law, a former-quarterback from University of Wisconsin), yet amazingly my weight and energy are at the same levels from when I was 25 — even though I’m now 50. The secret to my health – and happiness – is a balanced diet, food made at home from whole ingredients, and most of all, my Flexipe (flexi-ble reci-pe) bases you find on this site and in my book.
By following my Kitchen Wizard Secrets, you too soon will feel like a wizard in the kitchen!
