After premiering at Tribeca, New York Magazine called Jeremiah "A rare, honest, and compelling glimpse into the life of a legendary chef.” Produced by Antony Bourdain, the film covers the life of Tower, who became one of America’s first celebrity chefs and one of the most influential figures in the history of American gastronomy. Tower gained fame as a pioneer in the California cuisine movement at Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse in Berkeley, during the 1970s and founded San Francisco’s Stars restaurant in the mid 1980s. The original bad-boy chef, Tower was known for his Studio 54 lifestyle, over-the-top brash personality, and his public feud with Alice Waters. Tower went on to launch his own legendary Stars Restaurant in San Francisco. Stars was an overnight sensation and soon became one of America's top-grossing U.S. restaurants. After several years, Tower mysteriously walked away from Stars and then disappeared from the scene for nearly two decades, only to resurface in the most unlikely of places: New York City's fabled but troubled Tavern on the Green. There, he launched a journey of self-discovery familiar to anyone who has ever imagined themselves to be an artist. Featuring interviews by Mario Batali, Anthony Bourdain, Ruth Reichl and Martha Stewart, this delicious documentary tells the story of the rise and fall of America's first celebrity chef, whose brash personality and culinary genius has made him a living legend.
