Synopsis

Restaurant kitchens are a pressurized stew of brutal hours, high stress and sleep deprivation. Acting out goes with the territory and anyone lower in the hierarchy is fair game. But the familiar macho posturing of celebrity chefs has reached a tipping point. Now, with an influx of women at the helm of restaurants, and a younger generation unwilling to submit to the brutal conditions once considered the norm, the rules of “kitchen culture” as we know it are being rewritten. The Heat takes viewers behind the scenes to meet pioneers who broke through the glass ceiling, including Anne Sophie Pic – the only three-Michelin-starred female chef in France; Angela Hartnett – a beloved UK star and two-Michelin-starred chef who survived Gordon Ramsay’s kitchens to become his first female protégé; Iron Chef and Top Chef Master Anita Lo. From grassroots to haute cuisine, The Heat is a compelling and illuminating journey into the culinary world.
