French chef Michel Bras, one of the most influential chefs in the world, has decided to hand over his renowned 3-Michelin-Star restaurant to his son Sébastien. Having worked with his father for 15 years, Sébastien feels he’s ready. But it's not easy to take over the family business when your father is a master in his field. Filmed in the gorgeous Aubrac region in the South of France, home to the Bras family for generations, Step Up To The Plate (Entre les Bras) offers a rare glimpse into the Bras' culinary process while capturing one of the most closely watched transitions in the world of haute cuisine. And for those of us who may never make the journey to Bras’s restaurant, the images of his culinary creations is more than enough reason to drop in. San Francisco, Seattle and Silverdocs Film Festivals. In French with English subtitles. (89 min.)

“A smart and poignant portrait of France’s finest family of chefs.” The Hollywood Reporter
