Last week I was invited to the preview of the movie Haute Cuisine by the lovely Samantha of Trigger Marketing. Being a slight Francophile myself I was in heaven, a movie about a French Chef, set in my favourite two places in France, Paris and Périgord. It’s a wonderful movie in a beautiful setting but be warned, don’t watch it like I did on an empty stomach, we had to straight out for dinner afterward. It’s a humorous and engaging tale with mouth watering visuals in which recipes are discuss and prepared lovingly. I heartily recommend the movie if you, like me, love anything French and are a big foodie movie fan.
The good news is I have two double passes curtesy of Trigger Marketing to give away to the movie. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post before 26th April and I will take a luck dip from those names and the two names that are picked will win the passes. I will contact the winners for their mailing address.
The passes are valid at any movie box office showing Haute Cuisine. The tickets are valid from May 2nd to June 10th.
About the film: Hortense Laborie, a renowned chef from the Périgord, is astonished when the President of the Republic appoints her his personal cook, responsible for creating all his meals at the Élysée 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. Based on the extraordinary true story of President Francois Mitterand’s private cook.
