Little Forest: Summer / Autumn

After a few years of city living, Ichiko has moved back to her home village in Japan’s mountainous Tohoku region. She commits to living off the land, spending her time making some of her estranged mother’s favourite recipes and carrying out some experiments of her own. As the seasons pass and the crops allow Ichiko to cook ever more tantalising meals and treats, her reasons for returning home come into focus. Little Forest is sumptuous treat for anybody who loves cooking and eating.
