Jiro Dreams of Sushi
September 28, 2012
I watched a film that I checked out from MCPL last night, and it was so good that I had to share it with you in hopes that you'll watch it, too. I love documentaries. I love food. I love interesting people. This film covers all of those bases and much, much more.
Jiro Dreams of Sushi is the story of Jiro Ono, an 85 year old sushi chef who runs the finest sushi restaurant in the world. This restaurant is not a fancy place. It is a simple sushi bar in a Tokyo subway station. This tiny restaurant is also a Michelin 3-star rated restaurant.
Jiro Ono has spent a lifetime perfecting the art of sushi preparation, and yet, he is always looking to improve his skills. His dedication to creating excellence, every single day, with every single piece of sushi served is an inspiration to anyone who feels that they should always strive to do their best in their job, no matter what that job may be. Even if you don't like sushi, you should watch this film. If you do like sushi, you will be very hungry afterwards.
