The two star chefs Eneko Atxa and Jiro Ono are not only 10.000km apart, but also follow two apparently contradictory philosophies - yet they are united by their love of cooking. Jiro Ono runs the Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo: the world’s first sushi restaurant to be awarded three Michelin stars. Eneko Atxa runs the restaurant Azurmendi in the Spanish Biscay: there, traditional Basque cuisine is combined with modern cooking techniques. The directors José Antonio Blanco and Angel Parra let the two master chefs enter into a global dialogue that highlights the similarities and differences of their philosophies.
