The acclaimed documentary, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, is now out in theatres amd if you’re the least bit interested in the art of cooking (or the fetishisation of perfection), you should go see the hell out of it. We know of many local cooks who were quick to check it out, and we’re hearing from them that it’s an inspiring jaw-dropper.
JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is the story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious 3 star Michelin review, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimage, calling months in advance and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro’s sushi bar.
