Celebrating a super Seattle sushi chef

Daisuke Nakazawa was featured in the sushi documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi.

Nancy expressed surprise that I'd never eaten sushi before last Sunday.  It wasn't really any big deal.  We were leaving the Tacoma Pal Do World supermarket with a car full of Asian cooking supplies and she'd picked up a container of the little rice rolls to eat on the way home. 

She offered me one.  I asked "Is there raw fish in it?"  She said no.  I ate it.   It was good.  Maybe I'll try it again.  Or maybe I'll try to make my own sushi.

"Heaven has no taste....And not one single sushi restaurant."
A look of pain crossed the angel's suddenly very serious face.”

? Terry Pratchett, Good Omens
