Jiro Dreams of Sushi Upodcast review

This week Upodcast is on a quest for perfection. Joined by our guests Paresh from the phenomenal music podcast “The CurrySmugglers” and the always insight and thought-provoking Anisha Jhaveri, writer for Urban Asia, we slice through the Japanese documentary by David Gelb, Jiro Dreams Of Sushi.

We follow the life of Jiro Ono, an 85 year-old sushi master and owner of Michelin 3-Star restaurant Sukiyabashi Jiro, on his continuing quest to perfect the art of sushi.

To give you an idea of what we are talking about in the show, here is a clip of what happened when renowned food author Anthony Bourdain visited Jiro in his Tokyo restaurant.

 

 

You can follow more of Paresh’s work on the Currysmugglers here, a podcast we can wholeheartedly recommend you listen to straight after ours.

Anisha you can follow on twitter or some of her writings on her blog as well as UrbanAsia

As usual you can listen, download to our show below and if you have a minute, we would love if you could write us a review or rating on iTunes. (It only takes a minute, just click here)
