Jon Shook Shoots Fish

Animal chef John Shook didn’t name his new seafood restaurant Fish, but he’s now starring in a documentary of the same name. But the film isn’t really so much about fish, though Shook is seen fishing in the film. Huh? L.A. Weekly reports that the new 20-minute doc is actually a look at the creative process, using Shook as the model. The film watches Shook sail into the L.A. harbor and catch a few fish, which he then tries to transform into a fantastic dish. The twist is watching to see whether Shook can pull it off or not. We haven’t seen the movie, but we have eaten his food on more than a few occasions, so it’s hardly a spoiler alert to imagine he probably has this one handled. [LAW]
