Directors:  Rasmus Dinesen

For eight years, Master Chef Rasmus Kofoed has been obsessed with a dream - a dream of winning the Bocuse D'Or, the individual world championship for chefs in fine gourmet cooking. The film follows the 36-year-old chef, who is as much an artist as a cook, during the six months leading up to the championship, and sheds light on an occupation that closer resembles an elite sport than anything else. It provides a rare glimpse into Rasmus' world, and the time, passion and confidence required to achieve the excellence of the world's finest Master Chef.

Rasmus is competing in the prestigious championship for the third time - this time going for gold. In 2005 he won a bronze medal and in 2007, a silver medal. Taking off two years to prepare for the competition and spending a large amount of money, time and hard work, Rasmus has one final attempt to prove himself.
