What does Chef Jeremiah Tower and I have in common? We went to boarding school in England and hated school food! That was what motivated me to learn to cook from my mom.  Neither of us went to culinary school and that’s where our similarity ends and his meteoric rise started…

Brief synopsis…see trailer below

JEREMIAH TOWER: THE LAST MAGNIFICENT explores the remarkable life of Jeremiah Tower, one of the most controversial and influential figures in the history of American gastronomy. Tower began his career at the renowned Chez Panisse in Berkeley in 1972, becoming a pioneering figure in the emerging California cuisine movement. After leaving Chez Panisse, due in part to a famously contentious relationship with founder Alice Waters, Tower went on to launch his own legendary Stars Restaurant in San Francisco. Stars was an overnight sensation and soon became one of America’s top-grossing U.S. restaurants.

After several years, Tower mysteriously walked away from Stars and then disappeared from the scene for nearly two decades, only to resurface in the most unlikely of places: New York City’s fabled but troubled Tavern on the Green. There, he launched a journey of self-discovery familiar to anyone who has ever imagined themselves to be an artist.

Featuring interviews by Mario Batali, Anthony Bourdain, Ruth Reichl and Martha Stewart, this delicious documentary tells the story of the rise and fall of America’s first celebrity chef, whose brash personality and culinary genius has made him a living legend.

    I would love to see this film because as Artist & inspired chef I too spent many years in a boarding school (in Kuala Lumpur) but only different is the food in Malaysia even in boarding school facility is pretty darn yummy. I remembered looking forward to weekend for special menu — roti canai dipped in curry. So good. My roommate and I would wait till the last call for breakfast (close to noon) by the dining area and then we would ask the cafeteria staff to give us all the roti to enjoy it in our room. hehe.

    As I get older and enrolled in pre-college prof.. we became pro at hunting for delicious food! my friends and I would go into the city spending our allowance money on the best street food and noodles and what have you (which are all amazingly delicious)

    Then, I arrived in US and boom, I had to find ways to satisfy my cravings for Malaysian cuisines by no other ways than making it myself! That grows into sharing my love and passio for Malaysian food & cooking with others and developing a community that appreciates Malaysian flavors, spices and cooking style.

    I want to know Jeremiah Tower and his amazing journey. Xo
