If you think top chefs are white-smocked gentlemen who swan about their
kitchens tossing garnish, then you havent seen Durs
Directed by Guillaume Sylvestre, the film is an intimate look at the
worlds of the chef/owners behind Toqué and Au Pied de Cochon, two of
Montreals best restaurants.
Normand Laprise and Martin Picard swear, swig from wine bottles and romp
around the world in search of perfect ingredients. The film depicts them
as rock stars whose passion for fine food is as voracious as their
appetite for life.
Warning: Vegetarians might want to skip this one.
Durs à Cuire, screening February 23, 6 p.m. at the Rendez-vous
