Behind the Scenes of ‘Kakehashi’

Director Andrew Gooi talks with KCTS 9 about his non-traditional culinary documentary. 

June 16, 2017

Director Andrew Gooi talks with KCTS 9 about his non-traditional culinary documentary Kakehashi, which features 2007 James Beard Award Winner Nobuo Fukuda. After moving from Japan to the United States, Fukuda worked to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western cuisine during his time as a chef at Benihana and later opening his own restaurant in Arizona.

Along with documenting the process that goes into creating Fukuda’s famous four-course meal at his restaurant, Teeter House, Gooi allows for his subject to share life experiences that helped shape his creative passions.
