The invisible foundation of Japanese cuisine
A world-renowned chef in Tokyo travels north and south to the ends of Japan to discover the origins of Dashi, the original source of umami and the invisible foundation of Japanese cuisine. As he immerses himself in the lives of fishermen and food craftsmen, he is moved by the dignity, humor, and generosity of people who themselves are invisible to society.
