OTTOLENGHI AND THE CAKES OF VERSAILLES
Opening at the Cinema Art Theater
Starting on September 25, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles,” a mouth-watering documentary that follows a famous chef who is tasked with the one of the biggest challenges of his career.
Join the journey of celebrity chef Yotam Ottolenghi on his quest to bring the sumptuous art and decadence of Versailles to life in cake form at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Visitors to Versailles” exhibit. He assembles a team - a veritable who's who of the dessert world, including Dominique Ansel and Dinara Kasko - to help bring his vision to life. The pastry chefs create a true feast of Versailles complete with a cocktail whirlpool and posh jello shots, architectural mousse cakes, chocolate sculptures, swan pastries, and an edible garden. The film perfectly captures the heights of human achievement and the frailty of decadence, adding taste as one more sense with which to experience the Met. [2020, US, 75 min, Rated: NR].
Cameron Meier of “Orlando Weekly” remarks “The desserts - and the stories behind them - are delectable.”
Screening times are 3 & 6 pm on Fri (Sep 25), 3 & 6 pm on Sat (Sep 26), 3 pm on Sun (Sep 27), 2 & 5 pm on Wed (Sep 30) and 2 & 5 pm on Thu (Oct 1).
