One night, Brooklyn-based food writer Hannah Kirshner was invited to apprentice with a "saké evangelist" in the Japanese mountain village of Yamanaka. Inspired by the farmers and artists that she met there, Kirshner devoted herself to learning how they perfect their handiwork. Part travelogue, part meditation on the meaning of work, and full of her own beautiful drawings and recipes, Kirshner's "sensitive, perceptive, and gratifyingly detailed" memoir (Booklist) is an ode to a place and its people, as well as a profound examination of what it means to sustain traditions.
