Jiro Dreams of SushiFoodie Flick to watch: Jiro Dreams of Sushi

This is a beautiful documentary of a famous Sushi chef, Jiro Ono, who at the time of the documentary was 85 years old and a grandmaster of making sushi.

His passion for his craft and attention to detail is compared to a maestro of a symphony. Along with the the artistic cinematography of this documentary and classical melodies accompanying the film, the documentary takes you into the life of a dedicated restaurant owner in Tokyo – from choosing the best fish and seafood and partnering with great vendors, to training his sons and staff, to good ecological and sustainable business sense and practices.

The sushi featured is artwork in itself – the care put into making sushi is fully shown in footage as you immerse yourself into the components and nuances of excellent sushi. The training and philosophy has subtle Buddhist undertones that are worth taking as truisms for your own journey in life. I thoroughly loved watching Jiro Dreams of Sushi on Netflix – I hope you do too!
