Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent


"A rare, honest, and compelling glimpse into the life of a legendary chef.” –New York Magazine

One of the most controversial and influential figures in American gastronomy, Tower became a pioneering figure in the emerging California cuisine movement while at the renowned Chez Panisse in Berkeley, launched the legendary Stars Restaurant in San Francisco and, after becoming an international superstar, mysteriously walked off, disappearing for nearly 20 years. Then, he resurfaced at New York City’s fabled but troubled Tavern on the Green, with all eyes on him. This delicious doc features Mario Batali, Anthony Bourdain, Ruth Reichl and Martha Stewart, helping tell the story of a brash, unyielding legendy of the culinary arts.
