Kings of Pastry
Thursday, September 16, 2010
Legendary documentary filmmaking team D A Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus discuss the world of fantastical French pastry. Their film "Kings of Pastry" documents the competition for the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France, France’s highest honor in the art of patisserie. They’re joined by chef Jacquy Pfeiffer, co-founder of Chicago’s French Pastry School. The film follows him as he journeys to his childhood home of Alsace to practice for the contest. "Kings of Pastry" is playing at Film Forum through September 28.
