Synopsis: Ihashi Satoru (Nakai Masaru), a self-professed gifted chef, joined the Japanese restaurant Fujimura after graduating at the top of his class in culinary school. In the beginning, he followed about as an assistant, but often got into trouble with the senior chefs because of his hard-nosed attitude. He even went up against his boss, Kumano Shinkichi (Kobayashi Nenji). However, Satoru gradually grew as a chef and came to respect Kumano. After that, he went to train in Kyoto – the home of Japanese cuisine. Through his encounters with various friends, he matured as a person too. After 10 years of training, Ihashi is now at Fujimura in a position with responsibility, but is frequently bewildered by the young people who join the kitchen … One day, the venerable Kyoto restaurant, Kikukaan, is taken to task by the mass media for food fraud. The mislabelling of the origins of food products by a long-standing Japanese restaurant, creates an uproar. Ihashi takes action and sets out to reform the festering restaurant. How will he get the restaurant, which has snubbed tradition and is on the wane, back into shape again?
