Inventing Cuisine – Michel Bras
The ‘INVENTING CUISINE’ series proposes documentary portraits films of some uncommon artists: great French chefs whom keep on inventing and re-inventing today’s cuisine. Beyond their style differences, this series makes us a privileged witness to their art. An art that does way more than just to look at the world, it eats it all up!
Michel Bras has brought new meaning to what could be considered regional cooking: a cuisine de terroir which isn’t tied to ritual and tradition, but symbolically brings the region itself to the plate. Paul Lacoste’s film offers a tangible look at how the chef’s environment nourishes his creations: the light and solitude of the Aubrac are nearly as important as the ingredients that go into his pots and pans. The images alternate between the two to carry us into a world that’s austere and harsh, yet also magical. A world the chef inhabits like a spirit. Michel Bras is a great shaman of cooking.
