A Chef's Voyage follows celebrated American Chef David Kinch and his team for a one-of-a-kind collaboration with three legendary French chefs.
"A Delicious Escape to France. It’s a feast!"
-Florence Fabricant
The New York Times
To mark the 15th anniversary of Manresa, his Michelin 3-star California restaurant, Chef David Kinch decides to close shop for a month so he and his staff can embark on a voyage to France for a one-of-a-kind collaboration with three legendary French chefs at their iconic restaurants in Paris, Provence, and Marseille.

Planning the trip takes months. To represent the refined Californian cuisine of Manresa, the team must bring their own seasonings, sauces that take days to make, and lots of abalone. But the logistics are tricky: how to sneak the food on flights; unfamiliar host kitchens; a language barrier and more.

The film takes us behind the scenes as the Manresa crew attempts to stage nine major meals over 10 days in the world’s most cinematic venues, alongside culinary superstars, with the world watching...and tasting!
"A Culinary Masterpiece...
- Janet Walker,

"A fascinating, behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of one of America’s upper-echelon restaurants - and, a tour through the heart of bucolic Provence, bustling Paris, and the gorgeous coastline of Marseille."
Elizabeth Brownfield, Forbes
"This culinary documentary basks in sumptuous food shots, takes you behind the scenes into buzzing French kitchens and offers stunning scenes of differing French landscapes. But its true heart rests with the chef and his team who set out on an odyssey - packing underwear and abalone - to discover the love of creating and enjoying culinary creations."
