POV will be broadcasting the documentary Kings of Pastry this week.

When Chris Hegedus and D A Pennebaker, award-winning filmmakers of The  
War Room, Startup.com and Don't Look Back, turn their sights on the  
competition for the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France, the country’s Nobel  
Prize for pastry, you’re in for a treat. In Kings of Pastry, 16 chefs,  
including Jacquy Pfeiffer, co-founder of Chicago’s French Pastry  
School, whip up the most gorgeous, delectable, gravity-defying  
concoctions and edge-of-your-seat drama as they deliver their spun- 
sugar desserts to the display table. The inevitable disasters and  
successes prove both poignant and hilarious. (90 minutes)

In many areas that will be June 21st at 10 PM Eastern time.
(Unfortunately not in my area. The DVD can be ordered in case your PBS  
station isn't carrying the program.)
