MICHELIN STARS

“Michelin Stars – Tales From The Kitchen” is a grand documentary, filmed over a two-year period and follows the lives, views and everyday of a long and diverse range of star chefs, global diners, food writers and Michelin management across the world.

From New York City to Copenhagen, from San Sebastián to Tokyo.

At a moment in time, when humanity is obsessed with food – photographing every dish, worshipping cooks and flaunting trophy meals on social media, the documentary goes under the surface and offers an in-depth, honest and relevant view into the world and every day of Michelin chefs and restaurants.

Telling tales from a grand menu of culinary temples as well as digging into the greatness and flaws of Guide Michelin in this golden age of gastronomy.

With grand chefs such as Alain Ducasse, Daniel Humm, René Redzepi, Andoni Aduriz, Yoshimi Narisawa, Victor Arquinzoniz, Guy Savoy and many more, the head production team of three Danes; Director Rasmus Dinesen, Producer Jesper Jarl Becker and Culinary Producer Kristian Brask Thomsen sets the gastronomy bar at the highest level possible.

This while also managing to illustrate a dark flipside of the shiny coin in creating utter culinary excellence; in search of a realistic understanding of life behind the often airbrushed scenes of what is arguably the most dynamic and creative industry in the world.
