“Jiro Dreams of Sushi”

Jiro Poster


“Jiro Dreams of Sushi” is a documentary about sushi master, Jiro Ono, and his 3 Michelin Star sushi restaurant in Tokyo, Japan.  Sukiyabashi Jirō is a restaurant in the basement of a subway station with 10 seats and where reservations must be made at least one month in advance. The 20 course sushi menu, starts at 30,000 yen (roughly $265) depending on the market that day and what fish is available.  The commitment and passion that Jiro has for his craft is unmatched.  If you need a little motivation to get up and accomplish something, then you should definitely give this film a chance.  Nothing makes you feel lazier than watching an 85 year old man work 7 days a week!  Not only is the message behind this documentary extremely inspiring, the cinematography is impeccable. It makes every piece of sushi look mouthwateringly delectable.  I have definitely decided that making a trip to Sukiyabashi Jirō has been added to my bucket list.  I cannot go my whole life without having the best sushi in the world!

Watch it now on Netflix!

In America and Kentucky, 1 in 6 people struggle with hunger.  This is a staggering statistic that Feeding America is hoping to change.  With the Holidays right around the corner, no one should have to be without food.  Below are some food banks located around the commonwealth and surrounding areas that will happily accept a donation or some extra food!  When you’re picking up your thanksgiving groceries this month, be sure to purchase a few more canned goods and non-perishable items to drop off for a family in need and visit to learn more and donate!
