The Heat: A Kitchen (R)Evolution

Year 2018
Runtime 71 mins

In restaurant kitchens, tight quarters, high pressure and hot tempers combine to create toxic conditions that make it difficult for anyone to survive, let alone climb the ladder to head chef. For women, the situation is even worse. Running a successful restaurant is a daunting challenge, even more so when the odds are stacked against you. From New York City's star chefs Anita Lo and Amanda Cohen to the queen of French cuisine Anne-Sophie Pic, seven chefs share their struggles while delivering delicious dishes and redefining the dining experience. An appetite for change has taken hold and there's no turning back.
