L'invention de la cuisine
Inventing Cuisine :Pierre Gagnaire
A documentary film by Paul Lacoste
Pierre Gagnaire whose restaurant is situated on rue Balzac in Paris is a singular chef. While others meticulously design their plates, so that they will each be considered a work of art, he prefers to work on posture, on attitude.He creates in a continual flux: his menu changes every month and his dishes every day as he rethinks things standing in front of the oven in relation to the reality of the product, its energy and the person he’s cooking for.
