CHICAGO – David Gelb’s lyrical “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” tells the remarkable tale of a living legend in his chosen art form, the creation of sushi. Master chef Jiro Ono may be 85 years old but he’s still more committed to his craft than most people one-quarter of his age. What makes a man like Ono, one who has built a life on repetition of his talent, go from day to day? And why is he the best at what he does?
CHICAGO – According to Jiro Ono, the intriguing titular subject of David Gelb’s documentary, sushi is a dish that must be savored. However, it should be eaten the instant that it’s served for maximum satisfaction. Fat will not be tolerated on the fish since lean meat carries the essence of flavor, and it is within the simplicity of each morsel that a true depth of flavor can be achieved.
