Kings of Pastry Premiers in Chicago

Tickets are now on sale for the Chicago premiere of Kings of Pastry, the documentary film created by Chris Hegedus and DA Pennebaker, directors of The War Room and Don’t Look Back. After meeting with great success in screenings all over the world, Kings of Pastry will be shown in the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago, Illinois, the city where the story of Chef Jacquy Pfeiffer’s pursuit of the prestigious title, Meilleur Ouvrier de France (Best Craftsman in France), begins.

The film follows ACF member Jacquy Pfeiffer, co-founder of The French Pastry School at City Colleges of Chicago and two other distinguished pastry chefs in their quest to do more than the best they can do in pastry, “but the best that can be done.” This is the essence of the Meilleur Ouvrier de France, a competition held in France every four years for artisans in the effort to achieve perfection in their craft, and be named one of the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France.

Kings of Pastry will be showing at the Gene Siskel Film Center from October 1st through October 7th, 2010. Follow this link to purchase tickets.
