Top Short Films: “Ripening” -Chef Oliver Rowe And His 15-Year “Food” Journey

Directed by: Stephen Ashwell and Miriam van Ernst

Executive Producer: Adam Penny
Cinematography: Stephen Ashwell
Producer: Miriam van Ernst

In 2005, Connected Pictures made a ten-part documentary for the BBC about chef Oliver Rowe, setting up a restaurant in Kings Cross and sourcing all his food from within London. The series was a global success, showing around the world for many years after. Since then, the seasonal and local food landscape has exploded.

However, Oliver’s journey hasn’t been quite as smooth in 2018 he wrote a book called ‘A Food for All Seasons’ about his relationship with food.

Together with director Stephen Ashwell ,we made a film to talk about his journey to today and about the important role food has played throughout his life.
