Hortense Laborie, a well known chef from Périgord, can´t quite believe that the president of the Republic has appointed her his personal chef, and that from now on she will have to prepare all his private meals at the Élysée Palace. Despite the jealousy and envy of many members of the kitchen staff, it does´t take Hortense long to earn their respect thanks to her genius. The authentic style of her dishes wins over the president, but the corridors of power are littered with obstacles. Based on the extraordinary true story of François Mitterrand´s private chef.

BIOGRAPHY

This movie, highly acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, won three César awards in 1991, including Best Directorial Debut and Best Original Screenplay. His other titles are: Beau fixe (1992), La séparation (1994), Je ne vois pas ce qu'on me trouve (1997), Sauve-moi (2000), Les enfants (2005) and Quatre étoiles (2006).
