‘Food Loves Kikkoman’ unleashes the variety and excitement this savoury natural product brings to flavour. Served with a healthy dollop of Northern Soul, this film zips through a whole arsenal of creative cooking that both inspires and challenges you. 

The food photography is especially delicious. From raw ingredients to a BBQ grill, to one pot meals, the unique design of the bottle is explored extensively in different ways. How it allows you to pour, drip or drizzle the soy sauce drives the narrative and is delivered in macro detail through Yann’s effortless in-camera techniques. 

Yann says: “This film was a great opportunity to surprise the viewer and educate them as to the versatility of Kikkoman. Its natural flavour enhancing properties used in both sweet and savoury dishes set me a wonderful challenge; to create mouth watering moments that effortlessly link and explore Kenji Ekuan’s iconic bottle design."
