Spanish and Japanese with English subt.
In his renowned restaurant ‘Azurmendi’ in Biscay (Spain), 39-year-old top chef Eneko Atxa is always eager to express new ideas in his dishes. On this cinematic culinary journey, we also travel to Japan, one of the countries with the most Michelin stars, where gastronomy can become almost a mystical experience as it has always been closely related to history, traditions, culture and roots. Here Atxa meets legendary Jiro Ono, a 90-year-old sushi master, and visits some of the city’s most emblematic places. Soul explores the secrets of gastronomy where two cuisines apparently so opposite in their philosophy, conception and experience, have both earned the highest culinary recognition: three Michelin stars.
