Hi, I'm June Voss, CEO of the company, a wife to an amazing husband whom I met while working at Walt Disney World and a mother of 2 wonderful children ( and 2 dogs, 11 goats and 3 rescued feral cats). I was born and raised in Japan. I would love to share delicious Japanese foods, culture and everything I love about the beautiful country.  I am not a professional chef, I just love cooking! I have translated and added some of the recipes I like, but once you've cooked a few of these dishes, you'll soon be able to cook almost anything in your Microwave Donabe. I hope you enjoy it and can't wait to hear & see your own Donabe creations!
