A Matter of Taste

In 2000, chef Paul Liebrandt was awarded 3 stars by the New York Times – at 24 he was the youngest to receive such acclaim. Post September 11th, however, no one was interested in such hyper-modern dishes as “espuma of calf brains and foie gras” and “eel,violets and chocolate.” A rare insight into the cutthroat world of haute cuisine, “A Matter of Taste” charts Paul’s struggles over the next decade both in and out of the kitchen as he tries to make his way back to the top.
