Genre: French Biographical Comedy

Rated: PG-13 for brief strong language.


Based on the extraordinary true story of French President Francois Mitterand's private chef, HAUTE CUISINE follows the impassioned and talented Hortense Laborie (Catherine Frot), a successful cook living in relative obscurity in the Perigord. Much to her astonishment, Hortense is recruited by none other than the President of the Republic (Jean D'Ormesson) for her ability to create dishes reminding him of his childhood. He appoints her his personal cook, making her the first woman ever responsible for creating meals in the kitchen of the Elysee Palace.

Hortense's indomitable spirit and tireless devotion to the art of authentic cuisine quickly win her the unflinching support of the President. Despite the prestige of her new position, however, she soon discovers the rigid protocol and bureaucracy inside the Palace to be unexpected challenges. As the battle for influence over the head of state wages on among the kitchen staff, Hortense sets out to prove that she can take the heat.
