Release Date: September 25, 2020

Plot: One of the world's great chefs puts together a team of pastry masters to make edible art inspired by Versailles for the opening of the Versailles exhibit at The Met in New York City
 
Clint Says: A must-see for any foodie
 
 
Back in the time of King Louis XVI and Marie Antionette, Versailles was the epitome of opulence and decadence, especially when it came to food. Most of what we know of the history of food was popularized in the kitchens of Versailles.  
 
That is why, when The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York decided to do an exhibit honoring Versailles, they called upon one of the world's great chefs to put together a team of pastry masters to create cakes inspired by Versailles. This documentary follows his journey from finding the right people for the task, to learning about the history of food at Versailles, through to the opening of the exhibit. 
 
If you are a foodie, this is a must see film. It is filled with interesting history and innovative techniques. It's also stuffed with suspense as the chefs deal with last-minute issues that could destroy the whole party. 
 
This is not a documentary that will change your life or make you see the other side of powerful and important issues, but it is one that will entertain you and make you want to eat cake.
