Hideki Endo

Born on the Japanese island of Hokkaido, Hideki Endo grew up learning everything there is to know about hospitality and service.

His family ran a hotel and his father was a chef, so it was no surprise when young Hideki fell in love with the art of cooking. After cutting his teeth at the family business, he left to work in Sapporo, Japan. For nine years he trained as a sushi master in the city’s finest establishments, until the Hilton Otaru Hotel took him on as a Japanese sous-chef. He enjoyed a three-year stint there before heading for Hong Kong to further hone his expertise and learn new skills.

In 2006 he joined Nobu for the opening of the Hong Kong InterContinental, and after six months the hotel appointed him Executive Sushi Chef. Now Executive Chef at Matsuhisa Paris, Hideki Endo is playing his part in bringing Nobu Matsuhisa’s take on Japanese cuisine to a French audience.
