Masaharu Morimoto Likes to Draw

Though his knife skills are renowned, Masaharu Morimoto (of Morimoto) revealed this week he also likes to make sushi a different way - by sketching it. “One of my hobbies is drawing,” the Iron Chef said on Twitter, backing up his claim by posting two examples.

The pictures, which look to have been done in colored pencil, are pretty good. One showcases a sushi fish selection that - judging from the drawing’s title - looks like it was served at Neta in NYC, and the other is a colorful bowl of chirashi, aka “scattered sushi.” What do you think, should he ditch the kitchen and head up an art gallery instead?

  1. Looks excellent... though I'd never see him desert the kitchen as his talents are among the best on the planet.

    I can imagine quite a few people would buy art made by him, but perhaps something he does whenever he's in the mood.
