The Food Network is awash with cooking- and baking-competition shows, but The Kings of Pastry operates on a much higher level.
Documentary peeking into a high-stakes French competition will fascinate foodies.
What makes Kings of Pastry more than a sugar-coated showcase of culinary porn is its emphasis on the individual human dramas that exist behind all of these delicacies.
Audience Reviews for Kings of Pastry
Don't even consider this as a Reality Cooking Contest, this is a true title is at stake. After watching this documentary you'll never see your pastry the same way ever again. Another production where D.A. Pennebaker comes through
If you are interested in the culinary arts, you will probably like this documentary about three of the 16 chefs seeking the Maitre Ouvrier de France designation; if you're looking for an uplifting tale of overcoming adversity, you'll be mostly satisfied, though the director's angle leaves a little to be desired - it kind of felt like he just turned the camera on. The low budget filming bothered me, too. Interesting enough, and not much "wrong with it," but it just wasn't my cup of tea.
Wonderful film about the process of becoming a MOF (a best of France chef) in pastry. Fascinating, emotional, and exciting.
