Jiro Dreams of Sushi (Directed by David Gelb, 2012, United States, Rated PG, 81 min.) is the story of 85-year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world's greatest sushi chef. He is the proprietor of Sukiyabashi Jiro, a 10-seat, sushi-only restaurant inauspiciously located in a Tokyo subway station. Despite its humble appearances, it is the first restaurant of its kind to be awarded a prestigious three-star Michelin review, and sushi lovers from around the globe make repeated pilgrimages, calling months in advance, and shelling out top dollar for a coveted seat at Jiro's sushi bar.

Following the evening screening of the documentary, enjoy a Taste of Japan in the Edward Wales Root Sculpture Court. Local sushi masters will be on hand to offer samples of their craft along with short sushi-making demonstrations. Sake sommelier Matt Powers of Verity Wines will guide you through sampling several excellent varieties of sake while representatives from our local Asian markets will offer a range of cooking implements and other products to purchase for your next Asian-inspired meal.

As an additional treat, local artist Man Hue Duong will offer an Ikebana demonstration and small pottery sale.
