Prince of Chocolate Michael Recchiuti Talks Kings of Pastry at the Balboa
Michael Recchiuti has signed on as an added attraction for a Saturday screening of Kings of Pastry, a documentary charting the pressures of competing in a prestigious competition called the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France (M.O.F.). The San Francisco chocolatier, a formally trained and (we can confirm) skilled pastry chef, will conduct a post-screening question-and-answer session. Some of Recchiuti's chef friends are featured in the film, and he should know what it's like to prepare for a prestigious competition like the M.O.F. And since it would just be cruel if he didn't, Recchiuti promises to come armed with plenty of chocolate samples.
