Step Up To the Plate is a captivating documentary about tradition, creativity, and one of the most important transitions in the food world. French chef Michel Bras, who owns and operates the hotel-restaurant Laguiole, has won many awards, including three Michelin stars (one of only 106 restaurants in the world, and 26 in France). In 2009, he decides to hand over his legendary restaurant to his son Sébastien Bras. Having worked with his father for fifteen years, Sébastien is ready. But it's not easy to take over the family business when your father is a world-renowned master in his field. Filmed in the gorgeous Aubrac region in the South of France, home to the Bras family for generations, Step Up To the Plate reveals the secrets behind their most extraordinary dishes while observing one of the most closely watched transitions in haute cuisine. Directed by Paul Lacoste.
