What I'm Watching -
Months ago, TT-friend Gary suggested that I watch the Japanese film "Tampopo". I didn't really tell me what it was about other than it was "good". It's actually a great film about the love and experiences related to food told through both the story of Tampopo, who wants to be the best ramen chef she can be, but also through the many vignettes that play out during the movie. It also reminded me of "Jiro Dreams of Sushi", a 2011 documentary of (at that time) 85yr old master sushi chef whose relentless pursuit of culinary mastery during of his 75yr career has earned him three Michelin stars, respect from fellow chefs, and a global fanbase.
