Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles
The sumptuous Tribeca-selected documentary Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles sees the renowned chef and author of books such as Jerusalem and Plenty turn his multi-talented eye to a new challenge: making cakes worthy of the Met. In the summer of 2018, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York enlisted Ottolenghi to lead a culinary gala inspired by the exhibit “Visitors to Versailles.” Assembling a veritable Avengers of the dessert world including Dominque Ansel and Dinara Kasko, Ottolenghi and his innovative team battle intense time pressure as they bring their decadent, Versailles-inspired dessert vision alive.
Why You Should See This Film
If there’s anyone we trust to make a movie about food, it's Laura Gabbert. Director of one of our favourite food documentaries of all time, City of Gold, which followed Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold on a culinary adventure around the streets of L.A., it’s a pleasure to see her focus her gaze on Ottolenghi as he journeys from London to Versailles and New York on his gastronomic crusade.

- Cinema doors will open 15 minutes before your advertised session time so that you can be seated and use that time to get comfortable, sanitised and make a trip to the bar if you’d like (our cocktails are very good!).
- There is now (at least) a 20-minute gap between sessions, so that our staff are able to do a deep clean of the cinema.
- Gift Passes can now be redeemed on all sessions excluding special events.
