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 at the time, passion and self-belief 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.
