In the late 18th century, a nobleman's prestige depended on the quality of food at his table. At the dawn of the French Revolution, gastronomy remained a prerogative of the aristocracy. When talented cook Manceron is dismissed by Duke of Chamfort, he loses interest in cooking. Back at his country house, his meeting with Louise gets him back on his feet. While they both feed a desire for revenge against the Duke, they decided to create the first restaurant in France.
