About Haute Cuisine

An obscure cook from a Périgord truffle farm makes waves in the Élysée Palace when she becomes the personal chef to France’s President. Starring multiple award-winning actress Catherine Trot, this French comedy-drama conveys the real-life story of Danièle Mazet-Delpeuch and how she was appointed as the private chef for François Mitterrand.
