Another in the fine series of documentaries from First Run Features - A must for "foodies". June 18 2012
By Steve Ramm - Published on
Format: DVD
This is another in the fine series of restaurant documentaries being released by First Run Features. I watched every one and find them fascinating.

This film by Sally Rowe follows British born New York check Paul Liebrant over an eight-year period from 2001 (when he was 24-years old) to 2009. We see him in his early days of being an inventive chef (in a city which is in the shadow of the then recent 9/11 tragedy) where he loses a job and then finds one and loses the next - still looking for the perfect place. We learn about the longs hours that a master chef must work (and his staff as well).

Rowe is the perfect director for this film, as she not only captures the chef's story but the GRORGEOUS food that he designs. It is truly art! The 69-minute film is supplemented by the following extras:

Three extended interviews with major chefs Heston Blumenthal from Fat Duck (5 min), Thomas Keller from the French Laundry and Per Se (9 minutes) and Eric Ripert from La Bernadin (6 minutes). Each explains their own career path.

The short (2:22) film by Rowe titled "Amuse Bouche" which shows Liebrant creating a unique appetizer. (great photography to electronic music score_).

A secind short (3:51) film by Rowe - " Carton et Lumiere" showing close-ups of food ingredients photographed as art.

If you've seen the other "chef" DVDs you'll want this one,; if not this is a good one to start with. No you won't learn to cook by watching these but you'll appreciate that high priced meal in a three-star restaurant even more when you see the work and risk that goes into running a restaurant.

Truly an artist with talent and integrity and a well done documentary.
A must see for anyone in the industry who honestly cares about what they do and how they present themselves and their work.
However, if you are passionate about ANY path you pursue, this ought to touch you.

Yet another positive review Oct. 21 2012
By D Louis - Published on
Format: DVD
I can't say anything that hasn't been said, but Amazon is making me write more than 20 words. This movie is great. Good direction, good context and well thought out structure. His story is inspirational for anyone, not just chefs. Check it out.
