A True Love Story
Funaki Dennai laid the foundations for Kaga clan cuisine in the Edo Period as a “kitchen samurai” who prepared food for the nobility. This heartwarming drama depicts the internal affairs of the Kaga clan from the perspective of a woman who marries Funaki’s son. It features meals made according to the Funaki family’s recipe collection “Ryori Mugonsho” and recreates the workings of samurai family kitchens at the time.
