Sushi Masters Explain the Art of Omakase | Food Skills

  • Published on Feb 12, 2018
  • In Japanese cuisine, the concept of "omakase" leaves the choices entirely up to the chef. At Shuko, one of the premiere sushi restaurants in NYC, the menu is driven by the imaginations of Nick Kim and Jimmy Lau, as well as the whims of Mother Nature. Hyper-fresh cuts of bluefin tuna, squid, barracuda, and needlefish travel from the chefs' hands directly to the diners' plates. The result is a meal that flows seamlessly from one course to the next. One of Manhattan's most traditional omakase experiences, as well as one of its most boundary-pushing, Shuko is a bucket-list destination for sushi obsessives worldwide.

    Here's a question for the sushi masters.
    Lately at sushi restaurants, I have noticed they are serving sushi rolls stuffed with minced fish.
    I'm paying for sushi, and I want a piece of sushi grade fish, not left over scraps that are minced and reused to put in my roll and call it sushi.......
    Please reply, and let me know your thoughts!

    When he says that what they serve is based on seasonality but then says that they alway have bluefin, not hating, but bluefin is endangered... so I'm pretty sure its not in season...

    • TheStudio
      TheStudio 13 days ago

      Think you misunderstood what I was saying, Blue fin tuna was one of the fish prepared in this video. That fish is endangered because of overfishing, and has been for many years. Therefore it is never "in season", because it is endangered and there is no legal fishing season for blue fin tuna. Thus when they say that they only serve seasonal ingredients, they aren't telling the truth because they serve an animal that is on the endangered species list. It would be like if a factory owner said they only use renewable energy and then started burning their trash for heat.

    I'm usually down with your content but promoting the killing of endangered species is a fucking no-go. You should consider getting that dentist on the next episode to talk about how happy and connected to nature he felt when he shot Cecil the lion.

    Gotta say I’m bummed @first we feast :/ bluefin is critically endangered and by showing a place/by showing it being prepared it promotes people buying and eating the product. Which only leads to further detriment and over fishing of the species...
    Really enjoy some of your content but this one is a bummer to see...

    That chef seems almost scared handling his ingredients like he isn't sure what he's doing or he lacks the years of practice and experience needed for such job. I dunno, whole thing they got going on has this UP & TRENDY BULLSHIT vibe around it. Not once mentioning the words fish or ocean. I call bullshit and overpriced.
