We follow Japan's team at the world's most prestigious gastronomy competition, the Bocuse d'Or. To beat the other 23 competing countries, chef Hideki Takayama must create dishes that excel in flavor, originality and artistic appearance. Ensuring that Japan's entry is exquisitely presented, Takayama is collaborating with noted designer Junji Tanigawa and artisans of bamboo and metalware that are distinctively Japanese. Watch the preparations, and see if Japan's culinary team takes home the prize.
