It can be an emotional experience when enjoying French pastry. The buttery glee within a chocolate croissant, the light and dizzy explosion of texture upon biting into a wispy macaroon, or the perfect balance of erotic essence that washes over your body when raspberry and vanilla mousse first kisses your tongue. If this sublime form of delight can be experienced on the receiving end of such artistry, imagine the passion that goes into creating these fleeting bits of confection.

In 'Kings of Pastry', directors Chris Hegedus and D.A Pennebaker not only offer us the personalities behind fine pastry, but we get to meet the absolute best and most talented chefs on earth.
