About the Movie
Chef and inventor Homaro Cantu helped put Chicago on the culinary map when he opened his first restaurant “Moto” and became a celebrity chef in his late twenties. A renowned inventor and social entrepreneur, Cantu innovated his restaurants and tackled big problems from Americans’ love affair with refined sugar to reimagining space cuisine. As much as Chef Cantu tried to change the world and make it a better place, a childhood filled with trauma and abuse shaped him more than he could have known. Filmed over a period of three years with remarkable access, INSATIABLE follows Cantu at a pivotal moment in his career and takes you on a dizzying and thrilling ride, in a story that moves from redemption and inspiration to tragedy and back again.
Great Story with a Sad Ending
I met Chef Cantu a few times while enjoying Motos. Such a sad story. I can only imagine what he would have done for the world had he made it through that tough time.
Amazing story of a true prioneer
I hope that this movie helps the world to see how many amazing ideas were pushed forward by this one man! It's amazing to see how much has happened in the short time since he's left us, and a shame he'll never experience the results of his work. The little neighborhood he set up shop in is now home to some of the most progressive food in the world... and it would have never happened without his passion pushing it forward first.
