Cakes. They’re not just a treat; they’re an artform. Sundance award-nominated director Laura Gabbert (City of Gold) follows five chefs, including the world renowned Yotam Ottolenghi, as they attempt to bring something new, exciting and sumptuous (in cake form) to an extravagant food gala based on the art exhibit “Visitors to Versailles.”

[It’s] a thoroughly enjoyable look into the process of how this Feast of Versailles event was produced, as well as an insightful peek into the personalities of the chefs who created the event’s masterful dessert art.
