Food and Guts: Inventing Cuisine: Pierre Gagnaire

Director: Paul Lacoste
Cast: Pierre Gagnaire
France, 52, 2008, color
French with Turkish subtitles

Pierre Gagnaire qualifies as one of the highest-tiered chefs in all of haute cuisine; many surveys rank his eponymous Parisian eatery as one of the top three restaurants in the world, second only to El Bulli in Spain and The Fat Duck in the UK. Gagnaire exhibits a heightened flair for culinary invention, to such a degree that his dishes and his menu, evolve not simply from week to week or month to month, but from moment to moment, with recipes that often emerge and change as he prepares. Gagnaire approaches each dish as a sculptor would his block of marble, or a painter his tableau. The documentary film Pierre Gagnaire: Inventing Cuisine steps into the world of Gagnaire for an assessment of his peerless approach to culinary art.

Inspired by the great European masters, from Renaissance to Art Nouveau, Berber’s works exemplify the deep, opaque whites of his journeys through the fairy tale landscapes of Bosnia to the dark, macabre burrows of Srebrenica.
