A Blog in Honor of my Friend, Nobu

On yesterday’s blog, I wrote about attending a tribute dinner honoring Christophe Navarre, CEO of Moet Hennessy and my friend, Nobu Matsuhisa, the acclaimed and highly influential chef proprietor of Nobu and Matsuhisa restaurants located across five continents.  I have known Nobu for many years and together, the two of us have spent a good deal of time in front of the camera.  Perhaps you remember seeing him on my television show.  The March issue of my magazine, Martha Stewart Living, features a wonderful story about Nobu with excellent recipes.  In 2000, I traveled to Tokyo, Japan and met up with Nobu at the Tsukiji Market (pronounced Skee gee), the largest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world.  Walking through this amazing place with Nobu was simply thrilling!  To see the video that we shot there, please click here.  I was very pleased to honor Nobu last weekend.  He is an extraordinary man who has single-handedly changed peoples’ perceptions of Japanese cuisine all around the globe.  I hope you’ll enjoy this little blast from the past in honor of Nobu.
