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.
Over the years of 1864 through 1876, Stanisław Chlebowski served Sultan Abdülaziz in Istanbul as his court painter. As it was, Abdülaziz disposed of considerable artistic talents of his own, and he actively involved himself in Chlebowski’s creative process, suggesting ideas for compositions –such as ballistic pieces praising the victories of Turkish arms.
