Kurt Fogle, Pfister’s Pastry Chef, in “Kings of Pastry”
Today’s the big day. It’s opening night of the Milwaukee Film festival and the Pfister is ready to walk the red carpet.
If we had to pick a recommendation of what to see this year at the festival, it would have to be Kings of Pastry, featuring our very own Pastry Chef, Kurt Fogle.

Here’s the film’s description and trailer.
Once every four years come the Olympics, the World Cup… and the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France. The what? The striped collar worn by The Best Craftsmen in France is more than the ultimate recognition for every pastry chef—it is a dream and an obsession. Influential documentarians D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus profile three chefs during the intense days leading up to the judgment of their art. These sultans of sugar concoct edible edifices that must satiate both the eye and the palate in order for the creators to become one of the Kings of Pastry.
