Movie synopsis: A historical story about love and Japanese Kaga cuisine, whose tradition has survived centuries and all the political upheavals until now. Sassy Hara, who is like a sorceress in the kitchen, was divorced by her first husband for speaking her mind. During a banquet, her tasting skills enchant the head of an important family of samurai/cooks who pass their art from father to son. Hara thus marries Yasunobu, who'd rather wield a sword than a kitchen knife. Their relationship develops as Hara teaches her husband the culinary art despite his protests. However, the political tremors and power struggles of the Edo period test the samurai's loyalty to the governing family through both food and sword.
