Creativity is a mystery, desserts included.
Substitute Flour, Sweat and Tears to Blood, Sweat and Tears for this documentary.
The Herald Scotland review headline after it was released in 2009:
"Forget Masterchef, This is the Culinary Hurt Locker"
"Imagine a scene never before witnessed: Sixteen French pastry chefs gathered in Lyon for three intense days of mixing, piping and sculpting everything from delicate chocolates to six-foot sugar sculptures in hopes of being declared by President Nicolas Sarkozy one of the best. This is the prestigious Meilleurs Ouvriers de France competition (Best Craftsmen in France). The blue, white and red striped collar worn on the jackets of the winners is more than the ultimate recognition for every pastry chef – it is a dream and an obsession."
Stars in Kings of Pastry are chefs Jacquy Pfeiffer, Philippe Rigollot and Regis Lazard.
