‘Failed science experiment’ or a ‘pianist who seems to have found extra keys’?

A Matter of Taste is a documentary about prodigious New York chef, Paul Liebrandt. At 24 he was awarded three stars by the New York Times for crazy culinary creations such as ‘beer and truffle soup’, but has been scrutinised by food critics ever since. The film explores Liebrandt’s artistry and unflinching work ethic through a career that has seen haute cuisine go in and out – and back in to fashion.

A Matter of Taste screens as part of The Richmond Weekender, a unique event series happening at the former Channel 9 Television Studios every weekend throughout March. The Richmond Weekender screenings are age 18+ events.
