In the last couple of days I’ve had the pleasure of discovering two fantastic looking documentaries that should pique the interest of Foodies everywhere.
The first film, titled Hungry, is “a journey into the world of competitive eating”. It features world eating contest champion Takeru Kobayashi who among other things lays claim to eating:
69 hot dogs and buns in ten minutes, 97 hamburgers in ten minutes and 89 tacos in ten minutes.
Hungry is currently attempting to fund post-production via Kickstarter, so check out the trailer and if you like what you see you can even get a VIP invite to the premier of the film in New York or LA.
JIRO DREAMS OF SUSHI is “the story of 85 year-old Jiro Ono, considered by many to be the world’s greatest sushi chef.” I watched the trailer for this yesterday and it looks absolutely delightful. Hitting up your favourite sushi restaurant and then checking out this film would be a fantastic way to spend an evening. Check out the trailer, but not on an empty stomach!
