Documentary filmmaker Sally Rowe traces the career of one of New York City's most celebrated and polarizing chefs, Paul Liebrandt, whose ambitious menus have excited diners and shocked palates.
One of New York City's most celebrated chefs, the British-born Paul Liebrandt has excited and polarized diners with his gastronomically ambitious menus, which have won him renown but also shocked palettes with such daring flavour combinations as eel and chocolate. Director Sally Rowe was given full access to Liebrandt as he ascends the highest peaks in the culinary world and also plumbs the depths after a particularly biting New York Times review. A revealing look at the pressures of the restaurant business and the often tense relationship between artists and critics, A Matter of Taste is an engaging portrait that extends beyond the kitchen.
