6:00 PM: Ottolenghi And The Cakes Of Versailles
Via London, Versailles, and social media, OTTOLENGHI AND THE CAKES OF VERSAILLES follows famous chef Yotam Ottolenghi on his quest to bring the sumptuous art and decadence of Versailles to life in cake form.
The London-based Israeli chef and celebrated cookbook author assembles a team—a who's who of the dessert world - to help bring his vision to life while organizing a food gala inspired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s exhibit “Visitors to Versailles.” Exploring the relationship between modern-day social media and the open court of the French monarchy, the film studies the alarmingly cyclical intersection between food, culture, and history.
OTTOLENGHI AND THE CAKES OF VERSAILLES perfectly captures the heights of human achievement and the frailty of decadence, adding taste as one more sense with which to experience the Met.
Only available to view in Arizona.
