OWNER CHEF
TAKESHI SHIBATA

Currently, he has opened more than 10 Chez Shibata shops, including four shops in Japan and shops in China and Thailand. Ever since 2009, when he became the first Japanese pâtissier to expand his own brand overseas, he has received numerous offers to open shops from all over the world. He provides high-quality Japanese sweets to Asia and beyond.
Japanese craftsmanship and sense of taste are now sought after by gourmet lovers around the world. Most Japanese craftsmen are unaccustomed to international activities and many hold negative views. He wants to internationally convey the delicate work he performs as a Japanese pâtissier by developing original sweets based on French traditions and techniques. And for the sake of the Japanese confectionery industry in the future, he wants to maintain the spirit of challenging oneself internationally while continuing to work in the kitchen even now.
As ambassador for a long-standing French chocolate manufacturer, he travels to various countries as a demonstrator, and at the same time, he comes up with his own original creations inspired by confectioneries and dishes from around the world. As a pâtissier who loves Japan, he wants to continue to interact internationally while cherishing his origins.

He is broadly active as a lecturer and makes television appearances both domestically and internationally.
