Michelin Stars: Tales from the Kitchen is a fascinating documentary about the impact of the Michelin guide. Haute cuisine is out of many people’s world, yet this documentary attempts to ground it into reality. These tales about great culinary menus showcase the art of creative perfection in the high stakes world of restaurant business. The documentary tries to make a tie into humanity’s social media obsession with food.
I wish that went somewhere, as it’s almost enough material for another documentary. The audio track was pretty strong, but I wish we could’ve got some special features.
