Haute Cuisine (Les saveurs du palais) by Christian Vincent (France, 2012, 95 min.). Focused on the pleasure of cooking and eating, Haute Cuisine satisfies foodies with plenty of fruit tarts, cheese, fois grais, bouillabaisse, and beef en croûte. Based on the real-life story of the personal chef to former French president François Mitterrand, Hortense (Catherine Frot) quickly wins the president’s favor despite jealous resentment from the other kitchen staff. The authenticity of her cooking soon seduces the President, but the corridors of power are littered with traps. Frot’s enchanting performance earned her a César nomination.
