Food Film Alert: A Matter of Taste
After tonight, he will be a household name (at least for those who subscribe to HBO) as A Matter of Taste premieres at 9 p.m. on HBO as part of the cable network's "Documentary Summer Series." The documentary follows Liebrandt and his partner, Drew Nieporent of Nobu, on their gripping journey to opening the restaurant, Corton. Directed by first-time director Sally Rowe, the film premiered earlier this year with showings at the Tribeca Film Festival and SXSW to phenomenal reviews. The short documentary even has cameos by other famous foodies like Frank Bruni, Grant Achatz, and Eric Ripert.
