Broadcast on January 17, 2022 Available until January 17, 2023

Join us as we visit Naganuma in the northern prefecture of Hokkaido where Australian Karl Diercke runs a pie shop. Among his crusty creations are meat pies, which offer a taste of Karl's homeland but with beef produced locally. We follow him as he consults with the region's farmers to find a way to cope with the shortage in ingredients and decrease in customers winter brings. We also meet Vietnamese Tran Tuan Anh, the manager of a Tokyo produce store with an international staff and clientele.
