Incredibly inspiring (just don't watch if you're hungry)
2 November 2019 | by gracinatorSee all my reviews

An engrossing journey into the obsessive mind of a brilliant pasta-maker, whose undeniable passion to share his really beautiful love of "pasta fatto o mano" is starkly juxtaposed with the angst of opening a restaurant in the trendiest city of L.A. while dealing with snarky suits. And obviously, Chef Funke's willingness to be totally vulnerable for this doc says a lot about him.

A total food doc for foodies! and at the very least, educational for those contemplating opening a restaurant in any metropolis.
