If that shouty chef from "Hell's Kitchen" were an ordained Buddhist priest, he might be something like Edward Espe Brown. The subject of Doris Dorrie's documentary, "How to Cook Your Life," and author of the popular Tassajara cookbook series, Brown is a gentle, sensitive soul who knows his ingredients and has definite ideas about how things should be done in the kitchen. And he can get pretty impatient, especially for a Zen master, when people don't do things his way. That's where the similarities to Gordon Ramsay end. Brown teaches spiritual well-being along with food preparation, and he's a warm, funny and often quite insightful guru most of the time.

Think of the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France as the Olympics for artisans whose crafts do not normally lend themselves to cutthroat competition. One such area is pastry chefs, and every four years, the best and brightest French concocters of confections gather in Lyon for a to-the-teeth battle for sweet supremacy. Veteran documentarians D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus - the team behind the Oscar-nominated "The War Room" (1993) - focus their lens on this aspect of the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France in their new doc "The King of Pastry.

OSCAR nominations arrived with a hashtag yesterday. #OscarsSoWhite spent the day circling the Twitterverse, inciting snarky-to- angry commentary from media socialites both small and large over the dearth of African-American nominees, particularly in the director and actor categories. No surprise, though, that Hollywood itself stayed silent. Silent, save cinematographer Dick Pope . At the very least, he was on hand to respond to Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences President Cheryl Boone 's unfortunate mispronunciation of his name.

If the accents coming out of the television during the 11th season of the Fox cooking competition Hell's Kitchen sound familiar, that's because at least five of the 20 chefs have ties to the Philadelphia area. The premiere is 8 p.m. Tuesday. "Oh, there was a lot of Philly there," said Zach Womack, 34, of West Philadelphia, a cook at The Cambridge on South Street.Also competing are Jacqueline Baldassari, 27, of Florence, Burlington County, executive chef at Ivy Inn in Princeton; Drexel University student Cyndi Stanimirov, 25, of Willingboro, a chef at the Madison in Riverside, Burlington County; Brasserie Perrier alumnus Michael Langdon, 33, of Hanover, Pa., executive chef at Huntsville Golf Club in Shavertown, Luzerne County; and Allentown native Jessica Lewis, 26, who left a finance career with Vanguard in Malvern and now cooks at Bagatelle NYC.
