Artisan edition in Chiba : Futomaki Sushi

In this episode, we'll be visiting Chiba. Its location on the Pacific coast gives it a temperate climate perfect for farming and fishing, making it a great place to find delicious foods. Our host Yu Hayami will be visiting the town of Isumi, located in southern Chiba, to show us the joys of the town through the local people. We'll also be meeting a local chef who will show us a local type of futomaki sushi, a popular food for special occasions in the area. The variety of different traditional rolling techniques on display has earned this local dish a lot of attention in recent years. By using local ingredients, we'll see how to make a futomaki sushi roll full of Chiba flavor.
