Spinning plates

We saw this lovely documentary tonight and for lovers of restaurants, chefs, food and/or documentaries, this is a must watch.

It's nominally about restaurants, but actually it's a story about people, family, love, loss and creativity. It follows three restaurants - all very different, from fine dining modern-art-as-food to humble mum-and-dad Mexican. But they all share in common the things we all have in common. They all have to deal with the surprising ups and downs life throws at you. I found it surprisingly moving.

It starts on March 6th. Go see it.
