A Film by Christian Vincent

Starring Catherine Frot, Arthur Dupont and Jean d'Ormesson

Hortense Laborie is a celebrated chef living in the Perigord region. To her great surprise, the President of the Republic appoints her as his personal cook. She accepts reluctantly but once she has accepted her nomination, Hortense works her heart and soul to produce both a stylish and authentic cuisine. For a while, she manages to impose herself thanks to her sturdy character and despite the jealousies she arouses among the other chefs. For a while only, unfortunately for her and for… the President.

"Captures a boisterous sense of life at the Palace. Above all, the film conveys the essence of a strong woman whose love for the land, its produce and creation of good food is an inspiration in itself."

--Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
