Family Meal: NYC

In the 1980’s, four French chefs, Daniel Boulud, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Eric Ripert, and Jacques Torres all immigrated to the United States and found friendship. Through the years, they formed the “French Connection,” turning to each other for support, both personally and professionally.

In this CNN interactive experience, these culinary masters sit down to an epic meal in which they relive the trials and tribulations of an immigrant in Manhattan. This is the first CNN Digital series to be shot solely on RED Digital Cinema cameras. In addition to a 15 minute documentary, the interactive also includes biographies on each chef, highlighting their momentous careers, 360 degree photos of each chef’s favorite dishes, as well as behind the scenes photography.
