Set in France in 1889, the film follows the life of Dodin Bouffant (Benoît Magimel), a chef living with his personal cook and lover Eugénie (Juliette Binoche).

They share a long history of gastronomy and love, but Eugénie refuses to marry Dodin, so the food lover decides to do something he has never done before: cook for her.


“A magnificent culinary romance... Like other members of the cinematic food canon, THE TASTE OF THINGS is not just an excuse to look at food. The meals prepared in this movie signify something: a labor of love, a concept of contentment, the immense melancholy inherent in the making of something exquisitely beautiful that will be only a memory an hour from now.” Alissa Wilkinson.
