2008. Canada. Directed by Guillaume Sylvestre. This rollicking documentary examines two famed Montreal restaurants, Toque and Au Pied de Cochon; the friendship between their chef owners, Norman Laprise and Martin Picard; and the extreme-sport attitude they take toward their profession. When they aren't busy pleasing customers and creating signature dishes, the restaurateurs keep the filmmaker breathless on their trail as they travel worldwide promoting the local produce of Quebec. In French; English subtitles. 102 min.
