OTTOLENGHI AND THE CAKES OF VERSAILLES
Dir. Laura Gabbert | 76 min | US | 2020 | English
Via London, Versailles, and Instagram, 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 at the New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. He assembles a team—a veritable who’s who of the dessert world, including Dominique Ansel and Dinara Kasko—to help bring his vision to life. 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.
