Synopsis: France, 18th Century. The prestige of a noble house depends above all on the quality of its table.
At the dawn of the French Revolution, gastronomy still is the prerogative of the aristocrats. When talented chef Manceron is dismissed by the Duke of Chamfort, he loses his taste for cooking. Back in his country house, his meeting with the mysterious Louise gets him back on his feet. While they both feed a desire of revenge against the Duke, they decide to create the very first restaurant in France.
“A delightful, sensory treat, Délicieux is a lush, bright, inventive take on class divides and one of the imagined birthplaces of fine dining in this lovely and engaging story of a 18th century French cook right before the French revolution.” – Spectrum Culture
“Delicious is beautiful, entertaining, and achieves greatness by radicalising eating out” – Film Threat
The screening of ‘Délicieux’ will include bite-sized French appetisers.
