FILM REVIEW: KINGS OF PASTRY (Documentary, 2009)
In every profession there is an elite level that only a few have reached. In Lyon, France 16 pastry chefs compete every four years to be known as an M.O.F or Meilleurs Ouvriers de France competition (Best Craftsmen in France).
They train for years and some return after many repeat trials in what essentially is the Pastry Chef’s Olympics. Families are affected and hearts are broken, but it seems to be worth every hardship.
If you would like a real understanding of why France is home to some of THE BEST pastries in the world, watch “Kings of Pastry”.
