Movies at MARKET presents the screening of Three Stars on June 27 and 28

Focusing on ten Michelin 3 Star chefs, Three Stars takes a look behind the scenes at some of the world’s top restaurants

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, June 11, 2014 – For the final course in the Movies at MARKET series hosted by MARKET by Jean-Georges, the restaurant will host an exclusive screening of the feature documentary Three Stars on June 27 and 28. Guests are invited to grab a glass of bubbly, some gourmet popcorn, and join MARKET for a culinary journey perfectly paired with this interesting and engaging movie. Hosted in the Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver’s private Blue Moon Theatre, the screening of Three Stars is followed by a private four-course dinner featuring the culinary talent of MARKET’s Chef de Cuisine, Montgomery Lau.

 

Directed by Lutz Hachmeister, Three Stars refers to the rating system the Michelin Guide uses to indicate when a restaurant is doing something so spectacular, it’s worth a special trip. In Three Stars, Hachmeister interviews ten 3 Star Michelin chefs and depicts the everyday drama of life in gourmet restaurants. Offering behind-the-scenes access to some of the world's most talented chefs as they work in their gastronomic laboratories, Hachmeister depicts the hunt for exquisite ingredients in local markets, the business of cooking on the highest level, and highlights the various kitchen routines and culinary philosophies of chefs such as Yannick Alléno, Olivier Roellinger and Jean-Georges Vongerichten himself.

 

When the lights come up, guests of the Movies at MARKET series will be escorted to the Georgia Room in MARKET by Jean-Georges, where the second portion of the evening awaits. Chef de Cuisine Montgomery Lau has created a tantalizing four-course dinner inspired by classic Jean-Georges favourites. Guests can expect to be tantalized by a menu that includes Soya Cured Salmon with Asian Pear, Cilantro, Chili and Scallion and Aged NY Strip with Gingered Shiitakes, Soy Caramel Emulsion and Spring Asparagus.

With only 36 seats available per screening, the exclusive Movies at MARKET series is the hottest date night ticket in town. The evening includes a glass of bubbly, gourmet popcorn, film screening, and a private four-course dinner. The doors open at 5:00 pm with a glass of bubbly upon arrival, and the event starts at 5:30 pm with the screening of the movie followed by dinner.
