"My original review was 3 stars. Shame. My own damn fault. I forced myself to watch all of it, including the extras. I figured I should since i paid twenty bucks for this. I am now so glad I did.
It's probably the best in the series as it covers the evolution of one of his dishes from the base concept to the final dish. He vocalizes his thought process and involves his kitchen team. The same in the extras section of the DVD - he figures out what to do with some meringue shells that have been created. Good, geeky, pore over minutiae section after the slow start.
BAD: Starting with voiceover / dubs going to subtitles and ending with voiceover's. Bit weird.
Content wise, totally worth it.
Atmospheric, historical, interesting

"This is a documentary about Michele Troisgros, his famous restaurant, and his family. There's some material about cooking, we see the development and testing of a dish, although it turns out to be not very innovative, but the DVD's main content is interviews with the Troisgros family, and local scenery. Four stars for lack of cooking."
