INDEPENDENT LENS: “JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI”
December 23, 2013  | By David Bianculli

PBS, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

David Gelb’s vivid documentary profile is the first TV show I wish had been made in Taste-O-Vision. It’s about Jiro Ono, an 85-year-old sushi chef who is an astounding perfectionist and culinary artist. He works out of a small place at the Toyko subway, yet has earned three Michelin stars and is hailed in his country as a national treasure. What drives him? What distinguishes him? And what can you learn from him, about sushi preparation or just approaching life? Tune in… and savor. Check local listings.
