WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
When French educated pastry chef Kaoru Sakura discovers his patrons have started going to a traditional Japanese confectionery called Tatsuya, he storms out mid-shift to scope out the competition. When he confronts the owner, Sojiro Tatsugawa, with claims that his western treats are better, he’s met with a shrug and carefree attitude that sends him into a baking frenzy.
