Jiro Ono has been called the best sushi chef in the world. He’s certainly had enough practice: Jiro’s career began 75 years ago, and he only takes a day off when it’s a Japanese national holiday. Even at 85, he continues to work all day, every day. Jiro Dreams of Sushi, from documentarian David Gelb, not only presents some of Jiro’s masterworks, but also chronicles his perfectionist bent, which extends far beyond fish and rice. His apprentices serve for 10 years before graduating beyond the simplest preparations, and his own son is still second in command at the age of 50, 31 years into his career. Jiro Dreams of Sushi shows us the importance of tradition and honor in Japanese culture, while at the same time elevating food to an art form.
