In The Home Haute Cuisine

Long on flavor and deliciously French. It slides down a treat

The Hollywood Reporter

Haute Cuisine is spirited, funny and thoroughly entertaining. The Michelin guide would surely give it three hats.

Evan Williams – The Australian

Hortense Laborie, a renown chef from the Périgord, is astonished when the President of the Republic appoints her his personal cook, responsible for creating all his meals at the Élysée Palace. Despite jealous resentment from the other kitchen staff, Hortense quickly establishes herself, thanks to her indomitable spirit. The authenticity of her cooking soon seduces the President, but the corridors of power are littered with traps...


Based on the extraordinary true story of President Francois Mitterand's private cook.
