SIMMER is a powerful, untold story that explores culinary arts from an African-American perspective. Informed largely by co-writer Derrick Haggerty’s experience as the only student of color in his class at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, this film explores the complex themes of subverting expectations in order to beat the odds and realize your passion.
