JEREMIAH TOWER: THE LAST MAGNIFICENT
OPENS FRIDAY, APRIL 28
Jeremiah Tower, one of the most controversial and influential figures in the history of American gastronomy, began his career at the renowned Chez Panisse in Berkeley in 1972, becoming a pioneer in the emerging California cuisine movement. He went on to launch his own legendary Stars Restaurant in San Francisco. Several years later, Tower walked away from Stars and then disappeared from the scene for nearly two decades, only to resurface at New York’s fabled but troubled Tavern on the Green. Featuring interviews with Anthony Bourdain, Mario Batali, Ruth Reichl, Martha Stewart and others, this delicious documentary tells the story of America’s first celebrity chef and explores the man’s culinary genius and enigmatic mystery. Director: Lydia Tenaglia. (US 2016) 102 min.
