The Chicken, the Fish and the King Crab

DIRECTOR: José Luis López-Linares - Spain

Founded by legendary chef Paul Bocuse, the Bocuse d'Or competition is pretty much the Olympics of haut cuisine, bringing 24 virtuoso chefs from around the world to Lyon every other year for a competition in which they have five and a half hours to prepare 12 portions of two complete meals.  The chefs represent not only themselves, but also their nations and national cuisines.  Spain's 20-year victory drought is something of a thumb in the eye, especially since San Sebastian boasts more Michelin-starred restaurants per square kilometer than any other place in the world.  López-Linares' mouth-watering film follows master chef Jesús Almargo as he seeks to bring the Bocuse d'Or home to Spain--an entertaining bite of haute cuisine infused with high drama. 

Filmography: Storm the Skies (96), Speaking of Buñuel (99), Strangers To Themselves (00), Carlos Saura (04).

Sponsored by Higgins.
