Artisan chocolate making as an artistic expression similar to poetry or music – at least when speaking about the sweet treats created by Japanese confectioner Hironobu Tsujiguchi. The five-time winner of the prestigious Parisian chocolate festival Salon du Chocolat would like to win the award again with his culinary art based on Japanese traditions. This lyrical documentary portrait embarks on a journey in quest of a unique sweet taste, flavoured by rice flour and tea leaves.
