The Last Recipe

The latest film from the director of the Oscar-winning Departures tells the story of culinary genius Mitsuru Sasaki, a formerly renowned chef who now capitalizes on his gift: the ability to remember every flavor he’s ever tasted.

He is commissioned to cook a meal as the last request of dying gourmet for a fee lofty enough to save his floundering business. The catch is that he must seek out a lost recipe by famed Japanese chef Yamagata, who prepared the meal in occupied Manchuria during the 1930s for a historic feast to honor the Emperor’s visit. But where is the recipe now and what was the secret that Yamagata risked his life to hide?

This lively mix of international intrigue and sumptuous cooking will be enjoyed equally by fans of mystery and lovers of fine food!
