Spinning Plates is now available on dvd and digital download. I rented it via iTunes last night and was so moved by the story that I purchased a copy as well. If you’re food-obsessed or just love a great story, definitely take a couple hours out of your day to watch Joseph Levy’s beautiful film. You can watch the trailer here.
About: Spinning Plates is an award winning documentary about three extraordinary restaurants and the incredible people who bring them to life. A world-renowned chef competes for the ultimate restaurant prize in Chicago, while privately battling a life-threatening condition. A 150-year-old restaurant in Iowa is still standing only because of an unbreakable bond with the community. And a fledgling Mexican restaurant in Tucson struggles as its owners risk everything to survive and provide for their young daughter. Their unforgettable stories of family, legacy, passion and survival come together to reveal how meaningful food can be, and the power it has to connect us to one another.
