Bon Appétit
"A jubilant gourmet stops at nothing to please."

Ask anyone who loves to cook what drives their passion and the answers are universal: It's relaxing and creative, for family and friends that I care about, and I love to eat! 

With the abundance of popular tv shows like Emeril Lagasse, Rachael Ray, Top Chef, The Great British Baking Show, and movies such as No Reservations, Ratatouille, Julie & Julia, The Hundred-Foot Journey and Burnt, it's easy for any wanna-be-chef to satisfy their craving.

Bon Appétit, Barry Katz's one-page script, presents a gourmet Chef preparing an exquisite meal. The mood has been set -- classical music plays in the background and candles are lit -- and he revels in the "zone."

"The chef slices and dices meat and veggies with the precision of a surgeon. He sautées the medley, humming along while his razor-sharp utensils clang against the cookware in a syncopated beat."

When steam envelops the kitchen, "the chef takes in the aroma, wafting it toward his flaring nostrils."

His chef-d'oeuvre is almost complete. Ahhh, bellissimo...

Does the chef labor for his own pleasure? Or, is his exuberance for a deserving and grateful recipient? 

Bon Appétit  is an endearing script. Short and sweet, it's certain to satisfy any director with exceptional taste.

The Writer: Barry Katz

I have enjoyed creative writing from as far back as I can remember. It's the one talent in life I can truly say I have. While I don't currently make my living as a screenwriter, it is certainly something I aspire to do. For now, I enjoy the art of making art and most of all, I enjoy sharing my art with those who find it interesting. Several of my shorts have already been produced and I'm hoping to land a deal with a feature or television script... Go to bio
