David Kinch and his Manresa restaurant team are at the center of the new documentary "A Chef's Voyage," about the time they spent in France, collaborating on meals with the chefs and kitchens of three venerated restaurants. David discusses the movie and some topics it raises, and reflects on the loss of Pierre Troisgros, who died last week.
