About OTTOLENGHI AND THE CAKES OF VERSAILLES
OTTOLENGHI AND THE CAKES OF VERSAILLES Rating - G Documentary | 2020 Director: Laura Gabbert Stars: Dominique Ansel, Sam Bompas, Dinara Kasko History meets patisserie. Documenting the collaboration between world renowned chef Yotam Ottolenghi (Plenty, Jerusalem) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, this feature film follows five visionary pastry makers as they endeavor to construct an extravagant food gala based on the art exhibit "Visitors to Versailles." Exploring the relationship between modern-day social media and the open court of the French Monarchy, the film studies the alarmingly cyclical intersection between food, culture, and history. Eye-popping, sometimes almost confoundingly so. Tying the movie together is Ottolenghi’s generous personality, and his conviction that “a recipe is not that good if it doesn’t include a story.” - The New York Times
