Chef’s Diaries: Scotland

Sun, 4-14, 11:30 am
Directed by: Laura Otálora
UK/Scotland, 2019, 75m
North American Premiere
Haggis? The word alone can make one’s stomach turn! Yet this beautiful documentary draws us in as it follows the three fascinating Roca brother-chefs from El Celler de Can Roca (named world’s best restaurant in 2013 and 2015) on their inspired journey through the northernmost land of the British Isles, Scotland—haggis and all. To understand the territory, its products, and its artisans, the brothers explore whiskey, smoked haddock, Aberdeen angus, seaweed, razor clams, fly fishing, cheese, herbs hunting, strawberries, and more. In their pursuit, they create a love song to an astonishing cuisine that is yet to be discovered and savored. Scotland is beautiful.  Brothers Joan, Jordi, and Josep, and their team share stories of little-known people and products, and of a possible culinary revolution. In the end, they return home to Spain to create an ode to Scotland—a spectacular meal interpreting and celebrating all they have come to know and love.


Ramen Shop

Directed by: Eric Khoo
Singapore/Japan/France, 2018, 89m
“There is no sincerer love than the love of food,” said George Bernard Shaw. Orphaned when his unhappy father dies suddenly, a dreamy young ramen chef in Japan begins a culinary odyssey to learn about his family and how to make the beloved pork rib soup of his childhood. Masato heads to Singapore for the first time since he was ten and discovers its incredible food culture with the help of his pal and food blogger Miki. With her, he deciphers his mother’s diary, finds his wonderful Uncle Wee (who teaches him the family’s famed soup), and meets his formidable grandmother, Madam Lee. Through it all, the loving preparation of food unites and enlightens. With flashbacks to his parents’ salad days and lessons in Japanese-Chinese antipathy, the mouth-watering Ramen Shop acknowledges good food as a universal language.  Beautiful, delicious, and delightful, it is truly “food for the heart and soul.”


Spotlight Film

The Biggest Little Farm

Directed by: John Chester
USA, 2018, 91m
A testament to the immense complexity of nature, The Biggest Little Farm renders a heartfelt portrait of a Los Angeles couple (and their beloved dog) who flee the stress of LA for a new life managing a farm just north of the city limits in the foothills of Ventura County. Director/cinematographer John Chester and his food blogger wife Molly created Apricot Lane Farms to reconnect with nature and live an eco-friendly, sustainable lifestyle. Chronicling eight years of daunting work and outsize idealism—including planting 10,000 orchard trees and over 200 crops and bringing in animals of every kind—this unforgettable film joyously recounts the struggles, successes, and wild twists and turns of their inspirational endeavor. Putting his camera skills to good use in the service of rural California’s breathtaking natural splendor, Chester creates an autobiographical scrapbook like no other. What emerges is a life-affirming tale of one family who followed their hearts and turned their dreams of harmony into a flourishing, sustainable reality.
