A Matter of Taste

Leave a comment

I love a good foodie movie.  Do you have any favorites?  I have a definite favorite, which I will share it in a future post.  There are quite a few foodie movies out there, but not nearly enough, in my opinion.  Tonight we watched a 2011 documentary called “A Matter of Taste”,  by Sally Rowe.  Rowe gives viewers an inside glimpse of haute cuisine {literally “high cooking” in French}, by following the career of young chef Paul Liebrandt.  She did a great job of documenting his career at a number of restaurants in post 9/11 New York City, in his quest to achieve a Michelin 3 star rating.  Liebrandt creates gorgeous dishes, often using techniques from Modernist Cuisine, which is not my cup of tea, but it is interesting to learn about.  The movie is available through Netflix streaming and HBO, and I highly recommend checking it out.  Here is a link to the trailer.
