Directed by José Luis López-Linares

Jesus Almagro was a happy man when awarded Spain’s National Award as Best Cook 2007. His next challenge was to compete for the World Championship, the Bocuse d’Or… He thought he was up to the challenge, that preparing it was just a matter of time and skills.

He was definitively not ready for what lied ahead.

The Chicken, the fish and the king crab‘ is the story of a big challenge to fulfil a dream, a tale of hopes and expectations, and of crude and harsh realities, a rather funny, thrilling and compassionate journey towards greatness and self respect, the first ever gastronomic thriller.
