“I hope that soup will, in its own unobtrusive way, warmly nurture love and peace. I am convinced that from our first breath to our last, soups and broths can help us to find comfort and peace.” -Yoshiko Tatsumi

This documentary delves into the origins of the “soup of life” made by chef and essayist Yoshiko Tatsumi, which she originally created as a nourishing food for her bed-ridden father. Tatsumi, a popular TV personality (Kyo no Ryori) and writer, works with local food producers to ensure the most wholesome ingredients, and shares her wisdom and experience in popular cooking classes held at her home.

Yoshiko Tatsumi was born in Kanagawa Prefecture in 1924. Her mother was Hamako Tatsumi, the pioneering home cooking expert. She is the author of over 40 books and winner of the 2010 NHK (Japan BroadcastingCorporation) Broadcasting and Culture Award.
