“LOVE, CHARLIE” + “BEST CHEF IN THE WORLD” – Palm Springs Premieres Screenings

December 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

$15.00

In the 2000s, chef Charlie Trotter was the toast of Chicago, his eponymous restaurant one of the world’s top fine-dining destinations.  A gastronomic revolutionary and a culinary bad-boy, Trotter paved the way for the likes of Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay, yet his tempestuous, competitive nature alienated many.  With never-before-seen archival material and new interviews with those who loved and loathed Trotter–who died from a stroke in 2013 at age 54–this absorbing, unvarnished profile chronicles the passions of a master chef and the consequences of pursuing perfection at all costs. Told through intimate sit-down interviews with family, friends and celebrated chefs including Wolfgang Puck, Emeril Lagasse and Grant Achatz, along with extensive personal archival material.
