A luncheon for a lucky few. They're feasting on dishes created by Michelin starred chefs, Bruno Oger and Anne-Sophie Pic, for the star studded opening dinner of the Cannes film festival. Among the 650 guests will be jury members Steven Spielberg, Nicole Kidman and Ang Lee - so this duo are working hard to impress . SOUNDBITE: Chef Bruno Oger saying (English): "I mean at the beginning, we had to talk Anne-Sophie and me together since two months ago and talk about what we were going to do and what items we can use at this season, this is important. Then after we think about using a produce like garden peas which are right in the season and also together to use the produce from the south of France because we're in the Riviera." Serving a meal of this proportion in a 1,000-metre square hanger is not for the faint-hearted, but Oger said he and his team are up for the job. After all, he was the force behind the 50th and 60th anniversary dinners for the festival. As the kitchen staff work on last minute details, Oger has only one thing on his mind. SOUNDBITE: Chef Bruno Oger saying (English): "We tried to make them happy, you know? It's like when you go in a movie, when people smile when they go out. So if you're in the queue you say 'oh that must be a good movie'. So we try to do the same. If they smile we will understand and we will appreciate to do that." The dinner will kick off the film festival on Wednesday evening, May 15th.
