The Film:

France, 1885. The talented cook Eugenie (Juliette Binoche) has worked for the preeminent gourmet Dodin for the last two decades. Their mutual admiration turns into a romance, and gives rise to dishes, one more delicious than the next, that confound even the world’s most illustrious chefs. But Eugenie is fond of her freedom and has never wanted to marry Dodin, so he decides to do something he has never done before: cook for her.

Lingering on the tongue like a sip of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the film leaves one feeling a little drunk, desperately hungry and entirely alive.

Wall Street Journal

Food is a gift of love here – and romance courses through this delightful film.
