Food'N'Flix: Jiro Dreams of Sushi {Invitation}




Food‘nFlix
We've come full-circle and it's my turn to host Food'N'Flix where we watch movies and head  into the kitchen and cook or bake or make something based on a recipe they actually make in it or just something we were driven to make after watching it.

This month was my pick. And I selected Jiro Dreams of Sushi.

I watched this movie with some girlfriends last year; I remember it being a visual feast, seasoned with a quest for perfection. I'm looking forward to watching it again. 

If you're inclined to join the fun - and I really hope you are - watch the movie and get cooking.

Post about it on your blog with a link back to this post and to Food'N'Flix. Use of the logo is optional.

Your post must be current (during month of film). And of course we don't mind if your post is linked to other events...the more the merrier.

Have fun with it!

  1. I am so excited that you picked this flick, Camilla! It is such an inspiring story...and it makes me crave excellent sushi with a passion!

  2. I have had this DVD for months and I have yet to watch it (long story), so excited.

  3. I was just telling The Hubs about this and that we needed to watch this one together. :) And, we have neither EVER tried sushi. (Hey, we live in the Midwest.)

    1. You definitely get a pass on never having tried sushi if you live in the Midwest. I am always wary about eating seafood, in general, when I can't SEE the sea! Can't wait to see what you come up with.

    2. Ummmm...I live in the Midwest. We actually have an awesome Sushi restaurant in town!

    3. @Heather! I think it depends on where in the Midwest. I was in Oklahoma for a year and definitely felt like a fish out of water.

  4. I just watched this the other day and while I'm not going to quite attempt sushi, I do have something in mind!

    1. Can't wait. I was thinking of skipping the sushi-making, too. I've done it...but know that it won't be up to Jiro's standards.

  5. I watched this movie a few months ago and I am looking forward to watching it again. I loves me some sushi--just not making it (I am lazy like that!) ;-) but I have several ideas already.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
