Trailer for New Culinary Documentary “Michelin Stars: Tales From the Kitchen”

The Michelin Guide doesn’t cover Vancouver, but that doesn’t mean Vancouverites don’t use the venerable dining resource, particularly when travelling abroad in search of the world’s better restaurants.

Michelin Stars: Tales From the Kitchen is a new documentary film by director Rasmus Dinesen that looks at the impact the guide has on the restaurants within it. The first trailer is below:

The film features interviews with acclaimed culinary icons like René Redzepi, Alain Ducasse and Yoshihiro Narisawa (among others), and looks to be a fascinating journey into the accolade-angst of the world’s top chefs and restaurateurs. It is set to premiere at the San Sebastián Film Festival on September 23rd, 2017.
