Something is always cooking in 92-year-old Misao Kuwata's kitchen. Every week she prepares 600 Sasa-mochi, a sweet steamed rice cake wrapped in bamboo leaves that is much-loved by locals. Drawing on the nature and traditions of Aomori Prefecture, where she lives, she adds a little of her own creativity to make delicious treats, and shares them with those around her. As we follow her hard work and careful methods, we discover Misao's secret to living a life full of happiness and inspiration.
