Many foreigners come to Japan with dreams of becoming a TV or movie celebrity, believing in the outdated myth that being a caucasian foreigner in Japan is the easy ticket to fame and riches.

My guest today is Bobby Judo who hosts his own cooking segment on a local Japanese television network. What is particularly interesting about Bobby's story is how he managed to get his cooking show on Japanese TV. It's a story of hard work and dedication to a dream.
