Announcing new client Hana Etsuko Dethlefsen

June 21, 2017

Hana Etsuko DethlefsenIt’s our great pleasure to announce that Page Two principal Jesse Finkelstein is now representing cookbook author Hana Etsuko Dethlefsen. Welcome Hana!
Growing up Canadian in a mixed Japanese-German household, Hana Etsuko Dethlefsen is perfectly poised to translate authentic Japanese home cooking to an English-speaking audience. While living in Japan she did just that: her monthly column Forking with Hana helped fellow ex-pats navigate the grocery aisles and keep themselves well fed. Since returning to Canada, Hana continued to share her love of Japanese food by writing a recipe column for Oops magazine and by teaching Japanese home cooking at the University of British Columbia.

Now, Hana has launched herself into the cookbook world with a bang. Her self-published book, Let’s Cooking, celebrated a 205% successful crowd-funding campaign, raising more than $14,000 for printing and production. After selling out in only three months, the success of Let’s Cooking​ and her subsequent media appearances caught the attention of television broadcasters. Gusto TV​ hired her to host One World Kitchen​, a cooking show celebrating the diversity of Canadian cuisine. She has spoken at a number of lectures, sharing her love and knowledge of Japanese food, and continues to develop recipes and do more research on Japanese food, recipes, and food history.

To learn more about Hana, follow her on Facebook or on Twitter and Instgram @letscookingbook.
