The film traces Boulud’s path from his family’s farm in the village of St. Pierre de Chandieu to a career as one of America’s most respected chefs and restaurateurs.

Following the screening, Dorothy Cann Hamilton, founder and CEO of The French Culinary Institute, will interview Boulud.

Over the past two decades, Boulud has evolved from a chef to a chef restaurateur, bringing his artistry to his New York City restaurants DANIEL, Café Boulud, DB Bistro Moderne, Bar Boulud, and DBGB Kitchen and Bar. In addition, he has created Café Boulud in Palm Beach and Daniel Boulud Brasserie in the Wynn Las Vegas Resort. In May 2008, he opened Maison Boulud in the Legation Quarter in Beijing China.
