Kings of Pastry
The collar awarded to the winners of the Meilleur Ouvrier de France (Best Craftsman in France) is more than the ultimate recognition for every pastry chef - it is a dream and an obsession. The 3-day competition includes everything from delicate chocolates to precarious six foot sugar sculptures and requires that the chefs have extraordinary skill, nerves of steel and luck. The film follows Jacquy Pfeiffer, founder of The French Pastry School in Chicago, as he returns to France to compete against 15 of France's leading pastry chefs. The filmmakers were given first time/exclusive access to this high-stakes drama of passion, sacrifice, disappointment and joy in the quest to have President Sarkozy declare them one of the best in France.Kings of Pastry featuring Jacquy Pfeiffer and Sébastien Cannone is streaming on Fandor, and streaming with subscription on Sundance Now (Via Prime Video). It's a documentary and drama movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 6.9 (1,055 votes).
