Ottolenghi and the Cakes of Versailles (out Dec 26) is the perfect documentary (it's just over 70 mins) for those who love desserts. An acclaimed Israeli-English chef teams up with the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to recreate/reimagine desserts consumed by French royalty during the 17th and 18th century. It won't change the world but it delivers what it promises. Grade: B.
