A lyrical portrait of an artist
Explore the world of Tsujiguchi Hironobu and his award-winning artisanal chocolates. Think of chocolate-producing nations, and Japan may not spring to mind—but one award-winning chocolatier seeks to expand its possibilities by incorporating traditional Japanese ingredients in this mouth-watering doc.
A five-time winner of Best Chocolate in the World at the international Salon du Chocolat competition, Tsujiguchi Hironobu strives to create unique recipes that combine traditional flavors found in Japanese fermented foods with chocolate made from the highest quality of cacao beans.
As the filmmakers document Tsujiguchi on his quest for perfection—from miso producers and sea salt purveyors in rural Japan to organic cacao farms in Ecuador—they also reveal a portrait of a complex individual driven by a passion for his craft.
