Japanese customer meeting the needs of French restaurants with high quality Japanese vegetables in Paris

"Asafumi Yamashit grows around 50 varieties of vegetable, all of them Japanese ..."What I'm aiming for is not rarity - it's quality," ...Today Yamashita works with just six clients, including two of the world's most innovative chefs - Pierre Gagnaire and Pascal Barbot - the rising star Sylvain Sendra, and the Tour d'Argent, one of Europe's oldest restaurants.
He recently struck two Paris luxury hotels off his customer list after their chefs failed to live up to his exacting standards."
