LIFT 2014: Toshiki Okada’s Super Premium Soft Double Vanilla Rich

Special Free Film Screening: Drops of Heaven   org

Yoshiko Tatsumi is an 89-year-old Japanese culinary artist and writer, famous in Japan for Inochi no soup (“the soup of life”), a natural and nutritious soup which she has been making her entire life. Through discovering Yoshiko’s philosophy on slow food and nurturing life, this documentary film delves into the origin of the legendary soup which has warmed the hearts of many people, and which has also been an inspiration to cooks in hospitals across Japan. Filmed amidst the beautiful and delicate landscapes of Japan, the film offers a fascinating insight into Japanese home cooking throughout the seasons, recalling the forgotten days of people nurturing love and living in peace.
