The first time I saw the trailer of Burnt: Super Chef, I was at the cinema with Nicolai and it was hard not to show him how excited I was. Adam Jones (the main character played by Bradley Cooper) has always had a big dream: he wants to run the best restaurant in the world. At 16, he quits school and saves all his money for a ticket to Paris. One way. However, although it manages to gather in his portfolio two Michelin stars, due to drugs and a destructive behavior, ends up losing his restaurant. He manages to get his carrier and life together in London, without abandoning the idea of returning to Paris and opening a new restaurant with three Michelin stars.
Burnt: Super Chef is a story about passion for gastronomy, a love like in the movies and explores what really means the idea of a second chance in life. Given my own experience with a chef :)(transformed into a wonderful love story, once also filled with many adventures), I know what the pressure of a kitchen, a desire to give the best to your customers in order to make them happy and the sacrifices you have to make for things to work.
Before watching the movie, Societe Gourmet, Forum Film Romania and RANEvents (PR Agency) invited me to a special session of cooking with chef Daniel Wendorf. I cooked Quail, Carrot, Summer Savory, a reproduction after Marcus Wareing’s recipe, chef consultant for the Burnt: Super Chef movie. It was a very pleasant experience that I would repeat anytime. Now, I can’t wait to see the movie.
