I was at a Japanese bookstore and this book caught my eyes:
Then I realized that it is a graphic novel by Anthony Bourdain about: “In a not-too-distant future LA, master chefs rule the town like crime lords, and a bloody culinary war is raging. On one side are the Internationalists, blending food from all over the world; on the other, the ‘Vertical Farm’, adept of organic, vegetarian, macrobiotic dishes. And both sides want Jiro, a renegade sushi chef.”
I cannot but think the name Jiro came from Jiro Onoi. Not to say the story has anything to do with him of course.
