Kandace and I finally got around to seeing this movie last night. It was an inspiration, but like many stories I’ve read recently, it was also a reminder of the consequences of working as obsessively as possible.
There was a lot of meditation on the concept of “taste” in the movie, and I particularly liked this quote from Jiro himself.
If you don’t have good taste, you can’t make good food.
You can’t put it more simply.
