About Kei Okumura

After attending École Supérieure de Cuisine Française in Paris and years of traveling and immersing herself in the cultures of Japan, France and the United States, Kei Okumura founded Sugarbird Sweets in 2008. Many years later, Sugarbird has a Franco-Japanese essence which defines Kei's simple yet stylish confectionaries and pays tribute to her travels and culinary adventures. Exotic spices, seasonal fruits, teas and surprising textures find their way into Kei's confections and baked goods in a way that sets Sugarbird apart from the rest. Sugarbird is modernizing the traditional afternoon tea service by mix of Japanese ingredients with Californina flair to create a rustic tea service our blends.
