Tetsuo Shimizu is a man of tradition which means he's been making Udon Noodles using the same methods for the past 45-years.
In this video from ThePerennial Plate chef Shimizu explains the Japanese love of noodles and shows us exactly how he makes his own by hand.
He even grows his own wheat and goes to great lengths milling it to make sure it's in optimum condition for making Udon noodles.
A farmer by nature, Shimizu opened the Shogotei Restaurant as a place to sell his magical noodles. The video is beautifully crafted and is a fascinating look at one man's overriding passion to create a perfect product.
