Today, I watched a movie on hulu. The movie is "Bushi no kondate (武士の献立)"
It was around middle of Edo period in japan (around 1700's.) Bushi was a almost same as government employees. Cooks for castle not only shogun but also other Daimyo (load) were also a position of bushi. Main character was a cook of Kaga states because of his family roots. Kaga had a big load at that time. So, it had/has good food culture since such ages. ( I like there area's foods, too. ) But, main character did not like his work because cook is not main stream of samurai works. And his father found good woman who had good skill of cooking for his sun's wife. This movie is about such couple's life. They had many problems at there life, but they could pass there problems because of wife's wit. It was nice story, and if you dont have any knowledge about such japanese period, but wou will be able to enjoy this movie ( I think)
