In 1789 France, just prior to the Revolution, gastronomy is strictly the domain of the aristocrats; indeed, the prestige of a noble house is entirely dependent on the quality and reputation of its table. So, when the talented but prideful cook Manceron (Gadebois) serves an unapproved dish of his own creation at a dinner hosted by the self-entitled Duke of Chamfort (Lavernhe), the repercussions are brutal, and he is promptly dismissed. The wounded Manceron swears off his passion and retreats with his son to a regional inn visited infrequently by travellers, and where vegetable soup is the common meal. But when a mysterious woman arrives and offers to pay to become his apprentice, the stage is set for a wildly enjoyable tale of reignited passion, mentorship and revenge... and of the creation of France’s very first restaurant. Délicieux (Delicious) is a joyous depiction of the preparation and love of fine cuisine.


En 1789, à l’aube de la Révolution française, Pierre Manceron, un cuisinier audacieux mais orgueilleux, est limogé par son maître, le duc de Chamfort. La rencontre de Louise, une femme étonnante qui souhaite apprendre l’art culinaire à ses côtés, lui redonne confiance et le pousse à s’émanciper de sa condition de domestique pour entreprendre sa propre révolution. Ensemble, dans une vieille auberge peu fréquentée par les voyageurs, ils créeront un lieu de plaisir et de partage ouvert à tous: le tout premier restaurant français. Une idée qui leur vaudra clients… et ennemis. Délicieux, une comédie historique alléchante et gourmande, est le septième long métrage d’Éric Besnard (Le goût des merveilles, L’esprit de famille).
