Copperware *RERUN
This episode features cooking ware fashioned from copper, taking us on a journey into the little-known aspects of this world. Copperware is the magician's tool, as it were, for any first-rate chef. It produces mouthwatering, fluffy egg dishes, and glistening jams. Niigata Prefecture is a world-renowned center for beautifully shaped and colored hand-hammered copperware produced by craftsmen from single sheets of the metal. We look at how the craftsmen achieve the astonishing luster. There is an interview with the famous chef Tami Hiyama, who has been using copperware for more than half a century. And we also feature a producer of pancake-like sweets in downtown Tokyo who relies on copper utensils.
