This delicious and poignant portrait of France’s finest family of chefs might just change the way you cook forever.
In 1992, on the distant plains of Laguiole in southern France, Michel Bras established a now legendary restaurant, a rebuilding of the family owned eatery established by his mother decades earlier. Ranked in the top 1O restaurants in the world, it is home to Bras’ highly flamboyant culinary style, backed by his deep knowledge of the local flora and a focused mastery of technique. Filmmaker Paul Lacoste follows Bras as he decides – tentatively – to hand over the 3 Michelin-star business to his son Sebastian. It’s a rare insight into the creative process of the kitchen and the difficulties of handing down tradition – it will leave you in need of something sensational to eat.
