SYNOPSIS:
Back at the Woodstock Film Festival with his third feature documentary, director Rasmus Dinesen takes us on an exhilarating ride into the world of competitive haute cuisine in The Worlds Finest Chef (Verden's Beste Kok) where culinary competition is experienced on par with professional sports. For eight years, master chef Rasmus Kofoed has been obsessed with a dream of winning the Bocuse d'Or, the individual world championship for chefs in fine gourmet cooking. The film follows the 36-year-old master chef over the six months leading up to the championship, offering a rare glimpse into the rarified world of high stakes competitive haute cuisine where it takes extraordinary time, passion and self-confidence to compete with the best in the world.

Dinesen opens a window into the mindset of a single competitor illuminating the drive, focus and commitment needed for excellence. Verden's Beste Kok celebrates the sheer pleasure of the pursuit of excellence. Maria Marewski
