We are in the French countryside around 1798. Manceron, a gifted chef employed by the Duke of Chamfort, cares about food. For the Duke, fine cuisine is about showing off and when his friends deride Manceron’s new delicacy, he demands the chef apologise for daring to innovate. Manceron refuses, is fired, and returns to his lowly beginnings, providing plain fare to occasional travellers at a stagecoach stop. A mysterious woman, Louise, insists on becoming his apprentice. Eventually she coaxes the demoralised man into building up the business and we learn she has her own problems with the Duke. Against the odds, the first modern restaurant takes shape. It’s pure myth-making, of course, but fun -- the dishes are delectable and David Stratton has praised the beautiful lighting and cinematography.
