Sushi Porn

Standard

Hubby and I just watched Jiro Dreams of Sushi, and I now feel like everything I have ever eaten is the equivalent of McDonald’s compared to what Jiro serves at his sushi restaurant.

Watching this has made me realize that perfect is something to strive for, not something to reach. If Jiro can feel that his sushi, rice, a slice of fish, and some sauce can be improved upon, than certainly the things I do in my life can be improved upon. I can always strive to do better, to learn more, to hone my skills, my craft, my intention, and my focus.

I am a vegetarian, but there is something so vibrant and seemingly nurturing and nutritious about raw fish: the color, the transparent shine. I don’t know, maybe it’s just Jiro’s sushi which looks this way, but I now want to go out and have sushi. Maybe someday I’ll even go to Japan, making my reservation at least a month in advance, and eat a meal at Jiro’s. I mean they start at 30,000 yen and can be more, depending on what is fresh and good that day. BTW that is $294.

Are you like Jiro always striving to be better to learn more? Do you love what you do and give your all to you work your passion?

Are you a sushi fan? What should I try first?

  1. You’re right, good sushi does have eye appeal. People usually start with the vegetable choices, California roll, caterpillar roll, etc. Some of these do have a form of fish, usually whitefish, or eel. I happen to love eel, and the eel sauce. I have eaten raw fish (sashimi), but don’t really care for it. I looooove sushi and am always trying something new. Wikipedia says: Culinarily, sashimi represents the Japanese cultural appreciation of subtlety. Word.
