Grant Achatz: The Movie


In a Salon interview, documentary filmmaker R.J. Cutler reveals his next project: “I’m starting work on a couple of films. One is about Grant Achatz, the great chef, whose restaurant, Alinea, is in Chicago, and his book is the No. 1 cookbook in America right now. But his personal story is really what’s extraordinary. He’s considered by many to be one of the greatest chefs in the world, and he’s had tongue cancer, and in battling the cancer, he lost the use of his taste buds on his tongue.” [MenuPages Chicago]
