“An instant culinary classic that exquisitely captures the kitchen’s bittersweet blessing.”
New York Times

“Essentially a love letter to food and cooking; to what it feels like to sip a soup that is reminiscent of a sonata’s development ; to the sensual nature of food; to the simple joy of making something side-by-side with a loved one.”
Seattle Times

In late-19th century France, renowned gourmet Dodin Bouffant (Benoît Magimel) draws guests from far and wide for sumptuous meals prepared by his personal chef Eugénie (a radiant Juliette Binoche). They share a long history of gastronomy and love but Eugénie refuses to marry Dodin, so the food lover decides to do something he has never done before: cook for her. From acclaimed director Tran Anh Hung (THE SCENT OF GREEN PAPAYA) comes a beautiful and touching love story that also serves up a glorious tribute to classic French cuisine.
