Description:
With the 2011 documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi, 95 year old master sushi chef captured the imagination of the entire world. In JIRO Gastronomy, Jiro Ono outlines each of the dishes served at Sukiyabashi, with a meticulous breakdown of each ingredient. This section is followed by a step-by-step guide to the proper handling of sushi, from picking it up, to dipping in soy sauce. Finally, Jiro takes us on a tour of his 75 year old restaurant by breaking down the visitor experience from start to finish. The perfect pocket-sized book for any sushi lover.

Jiro Ono, owner and head chef of Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo, is widely regarded as the greatest living sushi craftsman. He has been working in restaurants since the age of seven, and Sukiyabashi was first opened in 1965. In 2011, the David Gelb documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi brought Jiro’s unique work ethic and sushi innovation to the international stage.
