DOCUMENTARY, THE CONTENDER, FOLLOWS AMERICAN CHEF TRAINING FOR WORLD COOKING COMPETITION

Los Angeles, CA (July 13, 2015)—In September 2015, Havenbrook Media is releasing The Contender, a documentary that takes place in the winter of 2012, where Certified Master Chef Rich Rosendale and Corey Siegel earn the opportunity to represent the United States in the prestigious cooking competition known as the Bocuse d'Or. The documentary is directed by Josh Baldwin who also serves as producer along with Mark E. Trent.

Held every two years in Lyon, France, the Bocuse d'Or represents the pinnacle of competition cooking. With the United States determined to make the podium for the first time ever, Rich and Corey embark on an intense one-year training regimen that includes the construction of a secret test kitchen inside of a decommissioned cold war bunker. Together with some of America’s greatest chefs, they vied for culinary glory at the Bocuse d'Or in Lyon, France.

“This film will give you the perspective of what it is like to compete at the very top of culinary competition,” said Rosendale.  “The dizzying workload and the attention to detail is unlike anything you have ever seen before. And in the end, you will see if the United States will finally make history.”
