This time, the theme is shiso, a plant used as an herb in Japanese cooking. Shiso is known for its refreshing aroma, and is used to garnish sashimi, as a spice and more. Its anti-bacterial properties have long made it an essential part of Japan's culinary culture. We visit a farm that uses insects instead of agrochemicals to grow shiso organically. We also discover foods from traditional pickled shiso from Kyoto to a shiso-based alcoholic beverage gaining attention around the world.
