Gabriel Carvin, a celebrated chef from Saumur, is given his 3rd crystal star by a restaurant critic. That same evening his wife, Louise, leaves him. This sudden separation triggers a family crisis. For Gabriel the overload goes straight to his heart. He has a heart attack, which means that this overactive chef is going to have to stay away from the cooking pots. This much needed break may enable him to find another passion. To get a change of scene, he goes to Japan so that he can once again enjoy the simple pleasures of friendship and try to discover the mysteries of umami, the fifth taste.
