Sushi Master Jiro Ono’s Apprentice Daisuke Nakazawa Demonstrates the Art of Sushi

First appearing in the pivotal 2011 documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi as the apprentice of the tough-talking standard bearer Jiro Ono, Daisuke Nakazawa has since capitalized on his fame by moving to New York and setting up his own acclaimed sushi restaurant, Sushi Nakazawa. Here, he speaks to Tasty about his first forays into the business, the tendency of the job to become your life, and why he struck out in America. This narrative, set to footage of Nakazawa tenderly constructing sushi from the best cuts of the sea, makes for food porn at its best. Enjoy the short film above.
