Leo Brady reviews “Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles” on AMovieGuy.com

With any documentary about food or cooking, the best result to receive is when the audience is mentally salivating. Or at least inspired to leave their home and head directly for the sweet shop after it ends. With Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles, we get a bit of that food porn, some culture, and look at the human side of various chefs. That makes for plenty to enjoy and inspire fans in the culinary arts. Laura Gabbert’s documentary is a brief, but decadent look at a 2018 celebration of the foods from Versailles, held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, led by world renowned chef Yotam Ottolenghi. The final result is a delightful and creative documentary of delicious preportions.
