Warren Ransom grew up immersed in food and has always eaten. Conscripted into his mother’s catering business at the tender age of eight, he went from breaking eggs to baking tarts in short time, and has always loved being elbows deep in ingredients.

After discovering sushi at 11 years old, he realized he had found something so unique and wonderful that it deserved his utmost devotion and has been obsessed with sushi ever since. He lives near an excellent sushi-ya and is constantly searching for something that he has never eaten before.
