    Jairo Dreams of Sushi

    RonB After watching your post on the making of Japanese knives, I thought of another film about A Japanese artisan about making and serving sushi. We loved this and it might be enjoyable for those who do like this style of serving seafood and related foods.

    EDIT: As is pointed out below, the correct title of the film is "Jiro Dreams of Sushi", not "Jairo".

      I've watched this a few times, some of my favorite take a ways...

      I play a lot of video games, but the ones I remember being the most proud of were stupidly grindy. Newer games hand you everything. My favorite games these days, you can lose everything for mistakes. Just a thought on life... Specifically he tells his son when he goes to make the second restaurant "you must be successful, because you cannot come home now" and how his apprentice is so happy after years to be told he did a good job at something. Not saying we have to force suffering for the sake of tradition, but there's something to be said about the lessons and pride involved in earning praise.

      The fact that he trusts each person in their field, the rice man, certain guys for this fish, certain guys for that fish.

      And the maybe not so acceptable one, but still great customer service noticing left or right handed and male or female for portion and location. My wife will kill more sushi than I will so she would be disappointed by this gesture. But the fact there is intent in service is something missing from even mom and pop places these days. I don't expect the attention level equal to the above, but I shouldn't have to beg for attention for another drink or whatever it is.

      Of course there's some sadness and sacrifice to all this too. But you have to take some of the bite off by understanding our cultural differences.

        I thought I would take a short peek, but wound up watching, (and enjoying), the whole thing. Thanks!

        Sushi is so fun to make yourself. I've watched many, many videos on sushi cooks, etc. Those videos inspired me to make sushi myself, and to be a better chef too.

            Bkhuna Yup, Damn auto-correct. I'd have to delete the post to correct the Subject, since we cannot edit that part of a post.

          I love this movie. His Sous chef for many years is Shiro, who opened a top rated restaurant in Seattle, called Shiro’s, strangely…lol I had the occasion to eat there recently. I can honestly say it’s some of the best sushi I’ve ever had and I’ve been to Japan many times!

            I find that the cheap Sushi you get at the convenience stores (conbini) in Japan are better than 99% of the Sushi in America. True, you can get good sushi if you're lucky enough to live in an area with a large population of Japanese, like LA or a few other cosmopolitan areas. But for much of the country it's pretty awful.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

        Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
