Chef's Night In: Off duty, he's all about meat and potatoes
by Maryann Smitt
San Francisco Chronicle

Shotaro "Sho" Kamio is one of the hardest-working chefs in town. He has been the executive chef of Yoshi's Jack London Square for the past 2 1/2 years, and now also oversees the kitchen of Yoshi's San Francisco. On top of that, he donates his time to local charities, his daughter's school, and travels to Japan each year to see what new culinary trends he can incorporate into the restaurants' menus.

Yet, when he does have time off - Sunday and a half day Monday - he often cooks a home-style meal with his wife, Monica, and 11-year-old daughter, Francesca. It's important to Kamio that the family meal is relaxed, and that their favorite foods are incorporated.
