As a foodie, I love all things food related. I love cooking, baking, eating. I also love watching foodie films. The story line can be about anything just as long as the main feature or character is food.
I was fortunate enough to attend the media preview of Haute Cuisine (French title: Les Saveurs du Palais) at Cinema Nova in Carlton. Haute Cusine is a delicious drama with a generous pinch of comedy, based on the extraordinary true story of President Francois Mitterand’s private cook, Daniele Delpeuch.
Hortense Laborie, a renowned chef from the Perigord, is astonished when the President of the Republic appoints her his personal cook, responsible for creating all his meals at the Elysee 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.
It’s filmed on location at the Elysee Palace, in regional France and Antartica and full of mouth watering dishes and incredible foodie imagery.
Haute Cuisine opens at selected cinemas nationally on April 25th.
You too, can watch this delicious movie. I am giving away 5 double passes to the movie. All you need to do is leave a comment telling me which Foodie movie you love the best. The passes can be used at any participating cinemas across Australia so only Australian residents can enter.
Competition closes April 23, so get on it!
