“Michelin Stars: Tales from the Kitchen” is the gateway to those kitchens for food lovers who wonder what’s going on in the kitchens of Michelin-starred restaurants that offer their guests unique dining experience with their different characteristics.
While the main focus of restaurants is the plate placed in front of the guests, director Rasmus Dinesen focuses on the story behind the plate prepared with his documentary ‘Michelin Stars: Tales from the Kitchen’ that released in 2017. The documentary identifies chefs not with their stars but with philosophies and recipes that Michelin intended to highlight: their creativity, consistency, quality of ingredients, mastery in technique, flavour harmony and plates depicting the chefs’ unique personality. And in order to preserve these philosophies, he offers viewers what chefs renounce from the chefs’ point of view. In this rating system, it is difficult to earn a Michelin star as it is difficult to protect, and we listen to the story of the time chefs spend on the road while searching for the pressure, we listen to the story of the time chefs spend on the road while searching for the excellence and the pressure they experienced by famous chefs from different parts of the world. ‘Michelin Stars: Tales from the Kitchen’, in which chefs Alain Ducasse, Daniel Humm, René Redzepi, Andoni Aduriz, Yoshihiro Narisawa, Victor Arquinzoniz, Guy Savoy and many more tell their own story, shows to the audience the place that unseen from the glare of the stars: the kitchen.
