In his renowned restaurant ‘Azurmendi’ in Biscay (Spain), 39-year-old top chef Eneko Atxa is always eager to express new ideas in his dishes.
By means of new cuisine techniques, he seeks to share the culinary memories of his childhood, the tradition of his land - the Basque Country, and the local products that inspire him, giving his customers an exceptional culinary experience.
On this cinematic culinary journey, we also travel to Japan, one of the countries with the most Michelin stars, where gastronomy can become almost a mystical experience as it has always been closely related to history, traditions, culture and roots. Here Atxa meets legendary Jiro Ono, a 90-year-old sushi master, and visits some of the city’s most emblematic places, such as the Tsukiji fish market and the world’s most exclusive restaurant ‘Mibu’.
SOUL explores the secrets of gastronomy where two cuisines apparently so opposite in their philosophy, conception and experience, have both earned the highest culinary recognition: three Michelin stars.
