At a moment in time, when humanity is obsessed with food – photographing every dish, worshipping cooks and flaunting trophy meals on social media, this documentary goes under the surface and offers an in-depth, honest and relevant view into the world and every day of Michelin chefs and restaurants. Telling tales from a grand menu of culinary temples as well as digging into the greatness and flaws of Guide Michelin in this golden age of gastronomy.
Because we share a great love for the industry that also includes a realistic understanding of things behind the picturesque scenes of the – perhaps – greatest, most creative and dynamic industry in the world.
Ramus Dinesen made his first feature-length documentary in 2003: Det forbudte landshold (The ForbiddenTeam), about the first Tibetan national football team. In 2011 he turned to the victory of Danish chef Ramus Kofoed – today distinguished with three stars – at the Bocuse d’Or championship to film Verdens bedste kok (World’s Finest Chef, 2011). In 2015 he directed the documentary TV series Star Chefs on Michelin-starred restaurants. He also directs and produces music videos and commercial films.
