A Japanese woman whose ice cream was praised by a Michelin-starred chef during a popular British cooking competition is now bringing a range of Japanese-themed flavors to Londoners.

Aki Matsushima found fame after reaching the latter stages of the BBC's MasterChef competition — an amateur cooking contest watched by millions every week.

On the last meal she prepared, Matsushima, 25, wowed judge Michel Roux Jr. with her sticky toffee pudding and miso ice cream.
