Documenting the collaboration between world renowned chef Yotam Ottolenghi (Plenty, Simple) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, this documentary follows five visionary pastry makers as they race against the clock to construct a decadent food gala based on the sumptuous exhibit: Visitors to Versailles.
- " Shrewdly balances a careful juggling act between allowing us to celebrate the breathtaking edible artworks that the film documents, while simultaneously demanding we question the broader social, cultural and economic symbolism of such work. " – Alexandra Heller-Nicholas (ABC Radio, Australia)
- " Primarily, though, you should show up for the mouth-watering food porn. " – Dan Schindel (Hyperallergic)
- " For such a sweet film, “Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles” evolves into a complex exploration of the symbiotic relationship between money and art, and questions what the visibility of that conspicuous consumption could portend. " – Katie Walsh (Los Angeles Times)
