Famous American chef Charlie Trotter, who passed away 8 years ago, was remembered with his biographical documentary at the Chicago International Film Festival held in his hometown of Chicago. The documentary, which will be released on October 22, focuses on Trotter’s strengths and weaknesses.
In the 2000s, chef Charlie Trotter was one of Chicago’s most famous names, and his eponymous restaurant was one of the best fine dining venues in the world. The documentary sheds light on the never-before-seen archival materials of Trotter, who is described as a gastronomic revolutionary, and his work up to his tragic death in 2013 at the age of 54. The documentary features Trotter’s love of food as he travels the world, his early life with his parents and sister, his first love and wife, and his second wife, Rochelle Smith.
In 2010, Trotter’s restaurant was one of three restaurants in Chicago to be awarded two stars by the Michelin Guide.
