For Yuri Nomura, who studied cooking, developed menus for restaurants and writes for culinary magazines, the way to people’s feelings is through their stomachs. This film traces the connection in interviews with people of various occupations and ages. Naoko Morioka, an Okinawa housewife, has no refrigerator in her house and lives a self-sufficient life, growing vegetables for her family to eat. Others questioned on what food means to them include Japanese pop singer UA and German fashion designer Jurgen Lehl. The film surveys methods of cooking, styles of food and drink, a tea ceremony and Japan’s largest fish market in Tokyo.
Yuri Nomura studied cooking in Britain, and after university began to work at IDEE, a Japanese interior and lifestyle design company. She developed menus for cafes and parties as a food director and has written for culinary magazines. She has also developed a nutritional education program for children. EATRIP is her first film.
