The Last Magnificent charts the life of Jeremiah Tower, one of the most controversial, outrageous, and influential figures in the history of American gastronomy. Yet his name has largely been obliterated from history. Featuring interviews by Mario Batali, Anthony Bourdain, and Ruth Reichl, this delicious documentary for the culinary set tells the story of the rise and fall of America’s first celebrity chef.
There will be a Q&A after the screening with actor Jeremiah Tower and director Lydia Tenaglia.
Harvard-educated Jeremiah Tower began his culinary career in 1972 as chef of Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California. Jeremiah then owned other acclaimed restaurants in California and Asia. His cookbooks, including the 1986 JBF winner Jeremiah Tower's New American Classics, and 'one of the best 20 culinary memoirs ever,' California Dish, in 2003. Awards included the JBF 'Outstanding Chef in America' in 1996. Recent activities include the two-hour documentary 'The Last Magnificent' which premieres in 2016, a new edition of California Dish with Ecco Press, and Table Manners with Farrar, Strauss & Giroux - both to be published Fall 2016.
