Synopsis

A Gastronomical Voyage with a Master of French Cooking

Guy Martin is the chef of Le Grand Véfour, the legendary Michelin 3-star Parisian restaurant. As a kid, he dreamed of being a doctor or a rock star. First trained in a pizzeria, 20 years later he is one of the best chefs in the world, with dozens of awards and restaurants in four countries.

Guy Martin: Portrait of a Grand Chef reveals Martin’s philosophy of cooking, which ranges from resolutely traditional to savagely creative. It brings to life the sources of his inspiration, from his childhood in the rugged Savoy region, to his appreciation of France’s historical supremacy in food, to his surprising and open-minded curiosity. For Martin, everything always is to be discovered. Nothing is ever finished. The cooking is to be reinvented every day. By drawing from past, he reinvents the present.
