Step Up To The Plate Film Poster


This fascinating and sumptuous foodie film records an important transition period for master chef Michel Bras and his legendary three-Michelin Star hotel-restaurant. Born and raised in the picturesque Aubrac region of central southern France, Michel started his career in the kitchen of his parents' inn before taking over the business and winning his stars. His dishes, including signature dish Le Gargouillou - an assemblage of 40 to 60 vegetables, herbs, leaves and flowers - reflect the produce of the region and the changing seasons. Now the time has come to hand over the reins to his son, Sébastien, who has worked alongside his father for 15 years. Not unexpectedly, the master chef is finding it difficult to keep his nose out of the kitchen, as we follow the family through this pivotal year from spring to winter with its shifting landscapes and ever-changing menu.
