We love our Uncle Tony and graphic novels in this household so we got our copy very shortly after it was released.
We like the story about a projected world, one which we might live in in years to come if the current trend of celebrity chef-worshipping by food-obsessed people continues. The art is not really our style but we had so much fun unearthing the many hidden "easter eggs" such as this...
..."Char Kway Teow"! Our favourite noodle dish in the world! Woo!
We also loved this documentary film, Jiro Dreams Of Sushi, starring a cool old sushi master dude whose name Uncle Tony borrowed for the main character in his graphic novel.
It is a beautiful beautiful film about the virtue of hard work and the constant pursuit of perfection. We can all learn a lesson in humility from Mr Jiro Ono (and I want to give him a big fat cuddle! And eat at his cute little three-Michelin-star restaurant one day!).
