Time To Dig Into Some Sea Urchin!
Have you tasted one of the greatest things to ever come from the ocean? Do you know how difficult hey are to harvest?
Well, a new documentary is about to give you all the answers!
The ultimate foodie food the sea urchin gets it close-up in The Delicacy, the feature documentary from Somm TV founder Jason Wise that also happens to be a feast for the eyes, shot mostly on Super 16mm, with additional footage via 35mm and Super 8mm.
Deadline.com had the exclusive trailer for “The Delicacy”, a look at the delicious and dangerous world of Sea Urchins!
I cannot wait to see this!
Here is that trailer:
I love Sea Urchins – this is a piece of sushi I got in Tokyo, the sea urchin offering up a briny pop of ocean flavor!
The new documentary looks the sea urchin’s role in nature and the lives of those who bring it to the plates of high-end restaurants around the world!
The film will begin streaming May 7 on Somm TV, a new “on-demand” streaming platform that plans to cover wine, food, and travel with exclusive new shows, films and educational content.
The new service will rollout throughout the year – they already have a podcast that I subscribed to as well.
“The Delicacy” includes culinary experts like Andrew Zimmern and Ray Isle as it follows the journey of the sea urchin from the ruins of Pompeii to the coasts of Santa Barbara and the Channel Islands, where it’s harvested by divers as a prized delicacy.
The Somm TV team made “Somm”, the 2013 documentary that followed four candidates trying to pass the famed Master Sommelier examination. It is also a GREAT film!
Of course, this movie makes me want sushi – RIGHT NOW!
And where is the most legendary place to eat some? In Tokyo with Jiro of course!
This legendary Sushi Master has his own documentary, which you can see the trailer for by clicking here:
