Synopsis

Hortense Laborie is a talented successful cook, living in relative obscurity in the Périgord. Much to her astonishment, Hortense is recruited by none other than the President of the Republic for her ability to create dishes that remind him of his childhood. He appoints her his personal cook, making her the first woman ever responsible for creating meals in the kitchen of the Élysée Palace. Hortense's indomitable spirit and tireless devotion to the art of authentic cuisine quickly win her the unflinching support of the President. Despite the prestige of her new position, however, she discovers the unexpected challenges of rigid protocol and bureaucracy inside the Palace. As the battle for influence over the head-of-state wages on among the kitchen staff, Hortense sets out to prove that she can take the heat.
